The card is from Ahmed, a Syrian Brown Bear from the Caucasus mountains between Turkey and Russia. He is an archeologist, and recently found evidence of the ancient Nabearteans at one of his sites. Leslie was surprised when she saw his photo; she imagined that he would look like the actor Bearrison Ford!
