Black Bear Pictures

Black Bears are as much fun to watch and taking pictures of as the more popular Grizzly Bears

The American Black Bear is found only in North America and it is estimated that there are approximately 750,000 that live in the forests. They can be found as far south as Florida and northern Mexico and as far north as forests grow in Alaska and Canada.

The black bear is probably one of the most popular species of animal that are referenced throughout the world in ancient and modern literature, songs, legends, mythology and songs. Most children learn about black bears through books, stuffed animals and stories and consider them to be large furry friends. They should also be taught of the dangers that could surround the black bear in its natural environment especially when a mother and her cubs are involved.

When crossing paths with a black bear pay close attention to the black bear's body motions or sounds as this can tell you a great deal. The black bear is not known as a killer and will generally run in the other direction. ...More information below photos...

Humans are becoming more tolerant of the black bear and as each day passes, we learn more about them and how to live in the same world with them. They were once considered very dangerous and were killed when spotted. Most of the black bears in North America do not die from natural causes but from human related causes. People are building homes farther into the black bears environment and It is up to us to learn to understand and tolerate them if the black bears are to have a long future.

Our collection of black bear photos will give you a better idea of how the black bear lives in the wild.
