Today's favorite is the brown bear. A big creature, a friend and a potential foe in the world of animals. Weighing up to 1,500 pounds! That's over 700 kilograms.
Bears are found on the continents of North America, South America, Europe, and Asia. Common characteristics of modern bears include large bodies with stocky legs, long snouts, small rounded ears, shaggy hair, plantigrade paws with five nonretractile claws, and short tails.
