Sixty seven serum samples collected from 43 European brown bears (Ursus arctos) from Croatia were tested for < or = 31 serum chemistry parameters. Results were grouped and compared by bears origin (method of capture), sex, age, mass, and season sampled. Greatest differences were found between captive and free-living bears, and minor differences were found when sex, age, mass, or season of sampling were compared. Creatine kinase was significantly different among three categories of bears with… CONTINUE READING
