Although it may not look it, the North American black bear is actually the continent's smallest bear species. Not only that, it's also the world's most common species of bear and often encounters humans because they wander into urban and suburban areas in search of food.
Scientific Name: Ursus Americanus
Characteristics: With a shadowy black coat and sandy brown nose, this meticulously hand painted figurine captures the look of the North American black bear to a tee. Not known to have any consistent predators once they've matured, this bear can afford the slow and casual strut it’s in the middle of.
Size and Color: 7.4 inches long, 3 inches wide and 4.4 inches tall, this bear figurine is about as long as No. 2 pencil, and as wide as and just a touch shorter than a soda can. Although these jet black bears are often solitary creatures, we're sure this timid fellow would enjoy your company!
