Spanish endangered animal: Eurasian brown bear

Animal

Brown bears are widely known animals that live in Eurasia and North America. The brown bear is the largest animal in the bear family and can pose a considerable threat to humans. The brown bear population is said to be very stable from a global perspective, but in fact there are only 200 brown bears living in Spain, making them an endangered species.

habitat

The Eurasian brown bear is widely found in Eurasia and the northern part of North America. Scientific name: Ursus arctos. The English name is Brown bear. This animal has quite a lot of hits when it comes to search information, so it is fairly well known.

feature

The Eurasian brown bear is a brown bear that lives in the Eurasian continent. Brown bears in North America are called grizzly bears. The Eurasian brown bear is 150-300 cm long and weighs 80-600 kg, so it is larger than humans and can kill humans. The coat color of the Eurasian brown bear also varies depending on the subspecies and habitat, and there are brown, yellowish brown, grayish and almost black. It has wide feet and long, strong claws on its hands that can be used as weapons. It is plantigrade when walking, and walks with all the soles of its feet on the ground, but when it encounters a predator, it will stand up and threaten it, attacking with the sharp claws on its front legs. Eurasian brown bears have the ability to adapt to a wide variety of habitats, including forests, grasslands, steppes and tundra. The Eurasian brown bear is a solitary animal. Despite their large size, Eurasian brown bears can walk very fast, and are said to reach a maximum speed of 50km/h. I’m not very good at climbing trees.

Ecology

Eurasian brown bears are omnivorous animals, so they eat not only nuts and fruits, but also insects, fish, and animal meat. Because Eurasian brown bears are so strong, they sometimes kill and eat mammals. The reproductive mode of the Eurasian brown bear is viviparous. The breeding season is from May to July, and the gestation period is 180 to 266 days. Females can give birth to one to three cubs at a time. Babies just born weigh between 340 and 680g, and their eyes are closed, but after about 18 to 30 months of breastfeeding they become independent in about two years. They reach sexual maturity in about 4 to 6 years, and have lived for about 50 years in captivity. Even in the wild it goes 30 to 40 years.

endangered species

Among bears, brown bears are widely distributed in Eurasia and North America, and they have the widest distribution area among bears, with the exception of Spain. In Spain, more and more hunters are illegally killing Eurasian brown bears, and their numbers are declining. Furthermore, due to land development, the Eurasian brown bear’s habitat is getting narrower and narrower, and it may appear in residential areas where humans live. Furthermore, the habitat is being fragmented, and there are cases where some Eurasian brown bears are isolated. There have been many cases of electrocution due to contact with power lines.

Breeding

Eurasian brown bears are larger than humans and can kill humans. It would be difficult to raise brown bears if they can sing with considerable skill. It is preferable to watch at the zoo.
