Bears and Evolution Game

Welcome to Bear Forest! A wonderful little forest with that can support 100 Bears. Click through the scenarios below and adjust the sliders to reflect how the bear populations will be affected based off principles of natural selection
Scenario |
Global Warming
Global warming is on the rise and the average temperature in Bear Forest steadily rose by 5 degrees for 10 years. After 10 years the total average temperature in Bear Forest was up 50 degrees. The hot temperatures made it really difficult for any animals who struggle cooling down to stay alive and find mates

The main thing to recognize in this scenario is that the rising temperature would have made it really difficult for bears with thick fur to survive because they would overheat.

Other factors to note:
Rising temperatures would not affect bears with different color furs, so the brown and white bears will remain at 25
A correct answer will include any number where total amount of bears is 100 and thin fur bears are more common than thick fur bears
