Product details

Bears differ from other‚ carnivores‚ as the special molar teeth that they possess have not specially adapted to shearing meat, but to instead grind down vegetation. However, for such a large‚ animal‚ to sustain itself successfully on a predominantly vegetarian‚ diet‚ the Black‚ Bear‚ must spend an enormous amount of time eating and is known to consume tens of thousands of nuts and berries in a day. As they spend around half of the day foraging for and eating food, the average Black‚ Bear‚ consumes a nut or berry every second of this time.
