Bearly Growing

Bears and humans are both mammals.

Sows are pregnant for about seven months.

A black bear's average life span is 20 to 25 years.

The black bear can be found in the United States, Canada, and Alaska.

The average height of a standing adult male black bear is 5 to 6 feet.

Bear cubs, like humans, survive only on their mother's milk for the first few months of life.

Black bears are omnivores - they eat plants and animal material.

Longevity and survival depend on availability of suitable habitat and its ability to avoid humans.

Contrasted with human fetal development of 9 months, sows are only pregnant for 7 months.

In early spring they eat wetland plants, grasses, and insects. Summer they eat berriesgrubs, and forbs.

Bear and humans are both classified as mammals, that means both are warm-blooded, nourish our young with milk, and are covered in hair.

In the east, black bears live in the forests and swamps. In the west, they inhabit mountainous areas.

Because black bears are warm blooded, they feed their young their mother's milk for the first few months of life. Cubs nurse while in the den.

A mature male bear weighs about 275 pounds.
