Most bears are nocturnal, withdrawn creatures that generally only congregate during the bear mating season. The mother bear will then raise her cubs until they too are mature enough to live on their own.

All bears are commonly classified as carnivores but most species of bear today have grown accustomed to various herbivorous traits, just like the giant panda. Most types of bears tend to hunt fish over land animals, although it’s not uncommon for a bear to not eat fish at all. Bears are rule breakers!
