The sea bear looks like a piranha with clawed fins (though it floats in the water on its side like a normal fish, unlike the regular fish of Bikini Bottom), and has the head and upper body of a bear.
 Defenses and Attractions
Attractions of a sea bear (with explanations and/or reasons):
- Playing a clarinet badly.
- Waving a flashlight back and forth really fast - flashlights are their natural prey, according to Patrick.
- Stomping on the ground - they take that as a challenge.
- Eating, distributing, or even holding cubed cheese. SpongeBob points out that sliced cheese is fine.
- Wearing a sombrero in a goofy fashion or upside down.
- Limping (worse than running)
- Wearing clown shoes
- Crawling (worse than limping)
- Wearing a hoop skirt.
- Screeching like a chimpanzee.
- Drawing an oval on the sand.
- It should also be noted that sea bears seem to just "not like" Squidward, since it always attacks him whenever he moves. SpongeBob tells Squidward not to run, limp, or crawl if he doesn’t want the Sea Bear to attack, but then, after doing something off-screen, the Sea Bear attacks once again, showing that, even though he didn’t do anything that a Sea Bear normally hates, the Sea Bear just doesn’t like Squidward (as noted by SpongeBob).
- To protect oneself from the mauling from the Sea Bear, an Anti-Sea Bear Circle must be drawn in the ground. Immediately after, the prey must stand or sit in the Circle's radius, and if successful, the sea bear won’t attack. However, a circle must be a perfect (or near-perfect) circle, and that an oval won’t help.
- Also if trying to escape from a sea bear don’t, under any circumstances, try to run from a sea bear, as they hate that.
- Don’t try to limp away from a sea bear (they hate limping more than running).
- Don’t try to crawl away from a sea bear.
- If the sea bear doesn't like you, it increases the risk of being attacked.
- Tickle it's tummy, Sea Bears love that.
- There is also a Sea Rhinoceros, which will always come after the sound of a sea bear attack, possibly to pick up any scraps of meat that a sea bear leaves behind (like vultures).
- There are many rumors and controversies about the dreaded Sea Bear. In a tabloid called "Fake Science Monthly" it explains that Sea Bears and Fairy Tales are real--however, this is an obvious gimmick, seeing that the title of the magazine itself implies that the stories inside aren’t true.
- Later in the episode, it shows a different issue of Fake Science Monthly, explaining the purpose of an Anti-Sea Bear Circle, and that it is the only defense against the Sea Bear.
- In another tabloid called "Bikini Bottom Inquirer", there is an article about a fish marrying a Sea Bear.
- Depite the name of the tabloid is "Fake Science Monthly," the tips inside, such as drawing an Anti-Sea Bear Circle, do really work.
