Hard to imagine that penguins were beat out in a town where they’re the mascots of hockey champions, but Pittsburgh’s polar bears, the world’s largest carnivorous land mammal, do wow zoo visitors. The bears frequently dive in the blue water of their exhibit, giving zoo-goers a cool underwater view.
