The bear is actually the turtle's godfather.

It is interesting to notice that the bear is a famous character throughout the danish course :D

He isn't in other courses?

the translation I was given said "since that was born". That would be incorrect. Even the translation above is incorrect since the antecedent of "it" is unclear. Since which one was born?

I would think that the translation can be both correct and ambiguous at the same time. Language is sometimes ambiguous.
