if there is some good data/literature on Goliath (there has to be something qualitative written/recorded) then we can use it in this thread....definitely a bear like Goliath (even if he was a captive bear) warrants his own thread.
So goliath was acctually a captive bear. He is acctually slightly taller than the 2200 pound polar bear shot in the wild (11.4ft vs 11.2 ft respectively). Big bons claims that the polar bear was more 'fat fueled' but i also believe the polar bear also has denser bones not to mention that the polar bear was wld and goliath was captive (wild animals tend to be fitter). How long has goliath been in captivity?
