Black (and sometimes brown) Bear
Unlike grizzlies, black bears skillfully climb trees to escape danger or to rest during the heat of the day. It is wise not to approach or attempt to feed a black bear; always steer clear of a mother bear with cubs.
Start searching! Can you find a bear track? Also look for tooth and claw marks high on the trunks of trees. Bears eat both plants and animals, and are called omnivores. Look at their scat. The droppings often contain the remains of a single kind of food such as berries, acorns or beetle wings.
