That famous ursine celebrity, Winnie-the-you-know-who, came from Canada with Lt. Harry Colebourn, a soldier in World War I. Winnie lived at the London Zoo. Kids familiar with Disney’s Winnie may be surprised by the playful bear’s statue at the zoo. He was, after all, a real bear. For bug lovers, the longest insect in the world is a must-see.
