Ah, you're right. I had mentally transferred them to the river
that runs through Pajarocu, probably because their life resembles
that of the people of Shadelow more than it does the comparatively
civilised (parts of) Main. Thanks for setting me straight. It was
just for occasions like this that I chose my nickname!

"Sbearo" ... a nice coining, thank you :-)

And Google doesn't have any matches for it at all, whereas it has
dozens of spurious Sun Bears, Sloth Bears (okay, not that spurious
in this case), Sitting Bears, Standing Bears, and even a site
selling llamas.
