About Peter Thoeming

There are eight species of bears, nine if you include J Peter Thoeming. Bears are extremely intelligent. They can count, they can use tools, solve problems and even communicate with a range of vocalisations and complex facial expressions, and this particular Bear can ride motorcycles, take photos, and type, which is why he has so many fans!
