Bears everywhere …

There are so many famous bears from TV, film and literature on the market that it must be time to stand out from the crowd and get a quirky Kawaii Animals bear. Our bear family is growing all the time …

Here’s some facts you might not have known about bears!

  • There are eight species of bear: American black bears, Asian black bears, brown bears, giant pandas, polar bears, sloth bears, spectacled bears and sun bears.
  • The first known species of bear was the dawn bear, which is now extinct. It was small and dog shaped and lived in European forests.
  • The brown bear is the largest species of bear. It can weigh over a ton although only the males would get close to this, as the females are much lighter.
  • The Koala bear is not a bear! Sorry folks, but it’s a marsupial.
  • As you would probably expect, the polar bear is the most skilled swimmer of all bears. They can swim at up to 6mph and are excellent hunters.
  • Bears in northern regions go into a winter sleep, rather than a hibernation. It is considered a winter sleep because their body temperature remains much the same, whereas if it truly hibernated it would drop significantly.
