On October 22, 2019, Goldilocks, Canada shared the following information about female brown bear anatomy:that included the following pictures (#1 & #2 ) and the following links (#1 & #2 ):

"...Female bear's urethra and vagina share the same exit opening from their body. Unlike human females that have a separate opening for their urethra. The vulva on a female bear is located not too far below the tail. When a female pees the urine stream originates from below the tail."
