Types of Bears

Last updated over 5 years ago

Bears are a small group of mostly large mammals, with 8 species (and a number of subspecies) in 5 genera (Ursus, Tremarctos, Melursus, Helarctos, and Ailuropoda). Although Ursidae is not diverse, species in this family are widespread and culturally significant to human populations throughout their range. (source: Animal Diversity Web).

This collection will feature important species of bear, bear facts and bear photos.
