***This post may contain minor episode 4 spoilers, so you might want to read the episode in full before continuing. ***
Episode 4 of The Scourge dropped on Monday night! Hope all of you received the update. Please let me know what you think once you have read it. It helps a lot to have your feedback, both positive and constructive. And if you have enjoyed the book thus far, I would be grateful for any positive reviews on The Scourge Amazon page.
In case any of you are curious about some of the subjects covered in episode 4, I thought I would share some interesting facts that I discovered during my research (or that my beautiful research assistant and muse, Annabelle, found for me). I’ll release one topic per post for a few posts.
- Some adult bears reach ten feet in length and five feet in shoulder height.
- Bears can weigh between 220 and 1,400 pounds. (Yes, they can weigh so much, you need a comma in the number) And for our European friends, that’s 100 – 635 kg.
- To give you a little perspective on that last number: A fully loaded mini-cooper weighs about 2,500 lbs. So, a fully grown brown bear can weigh two-thirds as much as a mini-cooper. Now, imagine two-thirds of a mini-cooper leaping and slamming into you. Okay, the analogy kind of sucks. But bears are damn heavy.
