The Black Bear lives in North America and in spite of its name comes in several colors including blue-gray, blue-black, brown, cinnamon and on rare occasion even white. These bears are excellent tree climbers but can also be found in mountains and swamps. The average life span of the Black Bear in the wild is 20 years and they range in weight from 200 to 600 pounds. Cubs are born during hibernation and remain with their mother for 2 years. In general the Black Bear is a solitary animal but they do gather in large groups to fish. Being an omnivore they enjoy fish and berries both. They can roam areas as large as 15 to 80 square miles but do not guard their territory like other animals.Using hypoallergenic surgical steel with gold plating, we mounted our Tiny Ones specie specific heads creating a very unique pair of post earrings that are such a perfect gift for anyone, including yourself, for birthdays or holidays.
