Yeah, that's pretty bad... What the hey is this about? Aren't encyclopedias supposed to be impartial?

Some breeders have crossed the American Staffordshire terrier with other breeds, especially the English bull terrier, yielding especially aggressive animals that are also called pit bulls.

I didnt do so well, But in regards to Polar bears. my sons animal encyclopeadia states that that Walruses are one of their natural enemies. I thought that maybe they were referring to a seawolf as a walrus.

I didn't fall for that one because they actually had canis in the latin name... I don't think there are any species in the same class that differ so greatly in habitat... Too much biology...

Not only not impartial, but ignorant and totally inaccurate.
