The bear is an animal in the Ursidae family. ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ

In ACGN works, bears and bear-related things sometimes appear.



"Bear" is a generic term for animals in the Ursidae family in the Carnivora order. In the narrower sense, "bear" refers exclusively to animals in the genus Ursus (brown bears, black bears, polar bears, etc.) The largest in size is the Kodiak bear. There are eight extant species in the Ursidae family, respectively the giant panda, the sun bear, the sloth bear, the spectacled bear, the black bear, the American black bear, the brown bear, and the polar bear. In prehistoric times, there were cave bears, short faced bears and other bears.

For humans, bears are fierce and dangerous beasts. When in danger or severely hungry, or when they come near their cubs/home, they will attack humans, but most bears are usually mild-mannered, and rarely start an attack (but polar bears are an exception, attacking humans on their own accord).

Bears are large, robust, omnivorous animals, most bears prey on herbivores, in addition to other prey such as frogs, rodents, shrimp and crabs, they also eat tender shoots, moss, wild fruits, honey, etc. And polar bears mainly prey on fish and seals.

The bear's limbs are thick, short and powerful, with sharp claws on their feet, which can be used to hunt prey or climb trees. Their tail is short. They have a good sense of smell, and are quick when running at full speed.

Bears are located mainly in the Northern Hemisphere, found throughout Asia, Europe, North America, and South America. There used to be bears in Africa, but they are now extinct. Among them, are bears in the colder parts of the Northern Hemisphere that have the habit of hibernating.
