Bear Facts

So we have dealt with a few light hearted and heart breaking beary bites but here are the bare facts. (See what I did there? I am soo witty - bear facts/ bare facts!Haha.)

Bears are characterised by their shaggy coats, short tails and their ability to walk with both heel and sole touching the ground.

There are seven different species of Bears:
1. Malayan Sun Bear
2. Sloth Bear
3. Specticled Bear
4. American Black Bear
5. Brown Bear or Grizzly Bear
6. Polar Bear
7. Asiatic Black Bear

In my story, Meena is a sloth bear.

Bears are native to North America, Europe, Asia and Antarctica and can be carnivores, herbivores or omnivores depending on what food is most readily available to them.

Though most people know that a baby bear is called a cub, not many people know that a female bear is a sow and a male bear is a boar!

Bears usually have cubs in litters of around four and hibernate for up to five months.

In my next post I will be getting back to the nitty gritty of dancing bears so bring your hankies!

Thanks for reading
