It may not look it, especially when standing on its hind legs, but the black bear is actually one of the smallest bear species. Endemic to North America, the black bear often wanders into urban areas in search of food and is the most commonly encountered species of bear.

The black bear is the most common bear species worldwide, and due to its close proximity to urban areas, the most frequently sighted and interacted with by humans. Bears are a prominent symbol in american history and folklore. The navajo prayed to the black bear, and believed that it was the strongest of all the bears.

Although many individuals associate a bear standing on its hind legs as an aggressive or defensive posture, it can also indicate a curious bear that just wants to get a better look at something. Black bears in the eastern regions of north america typically have black fur, while those in the western regions usually have brown, reddish-brown, blonde or even white fur.
