They’re a tad short in absolute terms: That’s the first surprise.
Moreover, they’re a tad short for their weight.
They . . . weigh 180-270 kg . . . (Ed’s note: That average 8 or 9-year-old human weighs about 27 kg)
They’re gracefully proportioned.
They have humped shoulders and short legs . . .
Chunky and squat. Excellent. But hey, they’re ours. Well, and Alaska’s and Greenland’s. And how can you not love an animal that stands together to protect its young?
