    Question :p

    Do bears put a plug of moss up their backsides before they hibernate to stop ants or other small creatures going up there? :omg:

    Answer.. :oops:

    A 'tappen' was a mucous plug, which forms in the rectum of a polar bear during hibernation and closes it. In summary, the tappen forms inside the body and plugs the anus during hibernation. A bear does not place moss up its backside, nor does it place a rock there, which was one of my earlier questions. The tappen prevents faecal material leaking out of the bear's body and soiling its home during hibernation. Apart from hygiene, the smell of faeces could attract enemies during a vulnerable period for the bear. The tappen is not produced to stop small animals going up the bear's backside, but its presence helps to prevent it. Whether ants would naturally want to go up a bear's backside is another question!

    My life is now complete with this marvelous revelation. Me and my suicide sect are off into the forest now. Make sure the last person out of broken Britain turns off the light, hey?

    Only one problem with that, they'll think you've said tampon, and then you spend half an hour explaining what the feck you actually meant - leaving them the opportunity to womble off calling you a dippy cunt.




    ...worst case scenario....

    Edit: Thought I'd be a tedious bastard to match this thread...
