No. Do fires take place in water? Do dolphins live in the forest?

The bear is relevant because his life depends on the safety of the forest. It's funny as a joke, but doesn't carry over into logial thought.

No, the "flame-retardant animals" don't live in the forest, and it wouldn't make sense to have a fish (for example) to be the one sending the message about preventing fires.

What animal is flame retardant?

If they were to change it, I think they should pick an animal alot of people have for a pet. That way they can just think of their kitty being in the fire and it might make them stop and think for a bit.

No because animals in the water aren't affected by Forest Fires, unlike bears.

Maybe. Or they could post a video of a burning dolphin on YouTube. (Totally kidding. Gotta love those dolphins)

You can cook dolphins, therefore they are not fire retardant.

I like dolphins better than bears, but I think a bear mascot makes more sense.

No, I'm good with Smokey.

No way, bears are my favorite animals. Smokey kicks ass.
