Tentacle Bears Vs. Vikings? If only!

Does this concept art from Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim actually show a Viking battling a bear with tentacles? (A beartopus?) A lot of sites are taking it that way. But as The Escapist points out, it's probably actually a bear standing over the dead body of a woolly mammoth. Too bad — a tentacle bear is an idea whose time has come, and a Viking is really the only person who could handle such a beast. [Bethesda]
