The spectacled bear is native to South America’s Andes mountains and is the only extant bear in that continent. When you aren’t foraging for nuts, leaves and the rare meat snack, you enjoy climbing trees and basically being the chillest bear this side of La Paz.
Found throughout the forests of North America, you are the most American of bears. When you aren’t busy being the mascot of the University of Maine or warning humans about the dangers of forest fires, you like to wander through the woods seeking berries, insects and the occasional fish.
You are one of the rarest of all bears for a variety of reasons, but everybody pretty much loves you. You might have the occasional issue in the bedroom, but that doesn’t stop everyone from wanting to go the extra mile to keep you around. Rock on, Mr. Panda.
Found throughout the most northernly regions of the planet, you combine excellent swimming abilities, tenacious hunting talents and a love of seals to make you the true badass of the animal kingdom. Winter? No problem for you, Mr. Polar Bear.
You are one of the world’s funkiest bears. Native of South Asia, some of your favorite activities include climbing trees and taking your young on rides on your back. Not only that, you share your species with Rudyard Kipling’s Baloo, so you know all about the “Bare Necessities.”
