The North American black bear (Ursus Americanus) can live roughly 15–30 years, and weigh between 220 lbs to 594 lbs. These solitary and nocturnal hunters, have a top speed of 30 mph. They live in Northern Arizona forests and spend most of their time walking in search of food. They require a massive amount of food and fat for the coming winters. Though classified as a carnivore, the black bear’s diet is 75-95% vegetarian depending on the availability of food, different to each location. Due to their size, black bears can be very dangerous to humans and our pets. Always keep an eye out for your pets and children when in an area that bears may roam.
