Bears - Where can they be found

  • Bears can be found in all parts of the world except Antarctica, Africa and Australia.
  • When a bear cub is born, it is about the size of a squirrel.
  • Bears have excellent hearing capacity. Like dogs, they can hear very high pitches - far beyond anything humans can.
  • Bears see in colour and have a pretty good vision.
  • Bears have an excellent sense of smell. Their noses are extremely sensitive and they send messages to each other through airborne scent.
  • Bears run fast. They can exceed speeds of 60 kmph faster than any professional human athlete!
  • Bears are very, very strong. They can overturn massive rocks and logs and dig dens on tough mountain slopes.
