Bears

Large Land Mammals /

Bears are mammals of the family Ursidae. They are widespread throughout the world and vary greatly. However there are only eight species of living bear left in the world. Their diet varies from Polar bears being pruimarily carnivorous, to Panda bears being entirely herbavores. They are mainly nocturnal, and some have long periods of hibernation. Hunting bears has been common practice throughout history for furs and meat. They also range from being least concern to threatened in the endangered scale. The eight species of living bear are: The Brown Bear, Polar bear, Giant Panda bear, American black bear, Asian black bear, Sun bear, Sloth Bear, and the Specticaled bear.
