Bears are ursine animals similar to dogs. They are generally omnivores, polar bears are carnivores and panda bears subsist primarily on bamboo.

Bears are identified by having large bodies, stocky legs, long noses, and shaggy hair. They have large, nonretractable claws and a small tail.

The bear detailed here is a brown bear, based on the American Grizzly. Brown bears come in various sizes and can attain truly massive dimensions. The Alaskan Kodiak is one of the largest of all.
