Bear Fact Friday

bear

When bears mate, the eggs within the female’s body are fertilized but do not implant in her uterus and begin developing for several months.

North America is home to three of the world’s eight bear species: brown, American black, and polar bears. Almost two thirds of the bears in the world live in North America.

Polar bears have the largest home ranges of any bear. One polar bear can hunt and live in an area as big as Maine.

Once bears breed, they go their separate ways. Male bears do not help the mother bear raise the cubs. Depending on the breed, intercourse may last a few minutes (giant panda) or half an hour (polar bear).

Baloo, from The Jungle Book, is a sloth bear.

Most bears have large, stocky bodies with short legs and a long snout. A bear’s fur can vary from the bright white of the polar bear to the reddish-copper hue of the brown bear. All bears have a heavy build but they are very efficient at climbing and swimming.

Bears have an incredible sense of smell, even better than most dogs.
