Looks to me like Gentian Violet- old remedy for skin infections

Thanks, Peter! Yes, that was the name of it. I had to put it on my cat's ear once...

We actually saw these bears once, on a trip more than 15 years ago to Mendoza, Argentina. I certainly hope they have a nicer enclosure for them now... I felt sorry for them.

I don't think I've ever seen a purple polar bear. What a hoot!
