Bear Fact Friday

bear

Bears have two layers of fur. A short layer of fur keeps the bear warm. And a long layer keeps water away from the skin and short fur.

 

Only the polar bear is a true carnivore. All other bears are omnivores, or animals that eat both plants and meat.

 

The bear that a person living in North America is most likely to run into is the black bear. They live in wooded areas in every Canadian province, many U.S. states, and parts of Mexico.

 

A male bear is called a boar or a he-bear. A female bear is called a sow or a she-bear. A group of bears is called a sleuth or sloth.

 

One variation of the black bear is a white bear called the Kermode, ghost, or spirit bear. These bears are very rare. Native Americans believed these white bears had supernatural power.

  1. I need to be a bear so I can always be warm. Hubby needs to be bear this evening when he has to cycle home from work for the first time ever and it is raining and cold…..

    Maybe I have the better deal.
