    Could be many reasons why. Type of tan makes an issue.
    Sometimes making sure your hide is fully hydrated using a good warm oil will help in getting stretch. Or the bear could be already stretched out as far as it can go.

    Lol the person wasn’t selling it as this area is for tanning not selling as there’s another button for buying and selling.
