Olga is a photographer with an incredible eye for it. At a different angle, she looks at the animals and creates lovely photos. This collection is one of her finest collections.

The mammals that are part of the Ursidae family are Bears. They can be as small as four feet long and as large as eight feet long and over a thousand pounds (sun bear) to about 60 pounds (the polar bear). They are found in all of North America, South America, Europe, and Asia.

Bear Diet

Even though you may not believe it or think it is true, all bears love the taste of honey and can be placed into categories of their preferred diet. For example, polar bears have been eating seals. American black bears are very fond of berries, insects, and developing bamboo trees. But giant pandas are pure carnivores. They will eat any small animals they can find. Sloth bears are ferociously fast others, even though their speed is not impressive, and capable of licking a hole in the termite dwelling, put their nose inside, and eating a full meal in just a few seconds. In Alaska, the Brown Bears gorge on salmon spawning, taking them out of the water or catching them as they jump out of the air.

Threats

The loss of habitat, primarily from logging, agriculture, and increasing human populations, is one of the greatest threats to all Bears species. Loss of land limits the amount of region that Bears have to hunt, which ensures that they are gradually coming into contact with humans, contributing to tension between humans and wildlife. Bears are slaughtered in fear of human life or revenge for the hunting or harvesting of animals.

Climate change is also a significant threat for polar bears. They rely on finding seals to eat on sea ice and often spend the summer months without eating while waiting to solidify the ice. The melting of sea ice poses an environmental danger to polar bears.

It has been known for many Bears to hibernate. This consists of slowing the heart rate, settling the body temperature, and reducing the metabolism so the individual can conserve energy during extreme food scarcity. During this grueling time of the year, Grizzlies and Blacks can go for an unspecified period without chewing, drinking, urinating, and defecating. These students wait for the end of summer and the start of the fall semester to find time to learn.

Female Bears rouse in their dens to give birth to up to four cubes during hibernation. Typically, giant pandas who do not hibernate give birth to only one cub. The puppies are safe enough to tumble out after their mother after a few months, except for sloth-bearing puppies touching their mother’s back.
