There is nothing more cute and adorable than a baby brown bear frolicking around, causing mischief and satisfying that curious nose of his. When you throw in a sneezing fit like no other, you dial things up to ultra-cute!
Morton, the bear cub, sounds just like a human when he sneezes! This baby brown bear, videotaped in 2006, is playing innocently and decides to go check out some plants up against a brick wall. Presumably, his little snout doesn’t agree with the pollen held within, and his resulting sneezing fit lasts a good 20 seconds. Once he stopped sneezing and regains his balance, he comes over and says hi to the camera.
According to the videographer, Morton is now known as Rocky, and lives in Farmington FA, on the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort.
Brown bears are certainly not the only animals that sneeze. All animals sneeze, with the exception of insects. Even fish do it, to expel debris from their gills. A whale, for example, needs to expel all that water to be able to even take a breath.
All mammals, humans included, sneeze to get rid of foreign materials that get trapped in the airways, according to National Geographic. When these foreign particles get caught in a mammal’s nose, they sneeze to expel these particles and keep them out of the lungs where they could do real damage. As Morton/Rocky shows us, bears sneeze just like humans do.
