A pair of cute and adorable baby brown or grizzly bear cubs.The Bold Black Bear
Black bears are the smallest and most common bear species found in North America. They can be found across the United States and in all provinces and territories in Canada, except Prince Edward Island. Although they live mainly in forested areas, these impressive animals have been known to venture into communities in search of food. Since they can be dangerous to humans, signs reading “Please Don’t Feed The bears!” are a common sight in campsites and rural areas near black bear habitats.

Despite their name, black bears can range in color from cinnamon, to chocolate, to jet black, and in some rare cases, even white (albino). They may look slow, but they are capable of great bursts of speed when needed - some have been clocked at more than 35 miles per hour (50 km per hour) for short distances!

A solitary Canadian Lynx displays its short tail, large, padded feed, cheek ruffs and tufted ears. Canadian folklore is rich with stories about these magnificent creatures. The popular children’s book character Winnie-the-Pooh was named after a Canadian black bear named "Winnipeg" that the author A.A. Milne often saw at the London Zoo. Black bears also feature prominently in the stories and traditions of Native Americans.

In autumn, black bears retreat into their dens to hibernate for several months. The mother bear (called a sow) gives birth to her cubs during her winter hibernation, usually in the late January or early February. A typical litter consists of two black bear cubs. They are born blind and helpless, with fine, gray, down-like hair, and are nursed by their mother, in the den, until the spring. When spring arrives the family leaves the den together in search of food. Although the cubs are independent at about six months of age, they stay with their mother for the first two years of their life.

A pair of magnificent North American bald eagles, the national bird of the United States, perched on a rocky shore of a fast moving river.A Highly Detailed, Original Work of Art by Wildlife Artist Pierre Leduc!
The intricate design by Canadian wildlife artist Pierre Leduc captures the majestic qualities of the black bear in remarkable detail, against the engraved forest in the background. Standing on its four legs, the bear’s bulky body size is evident when seen in three-quarter profile, as its front paws rest upon a rock in the foreground. Its head is turned to present the viewer with its carefully engraved facial features and its bold, inquisitive expression. Vibrant full color enhances the engraved textural details and brings to life the bear’s dark fur and lighter-colored muzzle. In this hillside clearing near the edge of a forest, the black bear inspires awe as it stands out among the bright colors of the vegetation, logs and rocks that surround it.
