The Spectacled Bear, is really one of the most awesome looking Bears, they are also one of the least ever talked about, the spectacled Bear is, mostly black, but has spectacled patches, they also have a rounder face and, shorter nose than other Bears. The Spectacled Bear is the only Bear native to south America and, it has no predators but us. Spectacled's and, Jaguars live near each other, but the Jaguars don't live up as high as the Bears do and, they avoid each other, it's eating habits are most like the Giant Panda, only about 5 percent of their diets is meat, they eat mostly cactus and, bamboo, but sometimes will take a adult deer. The Spectacled Bear can weigh around 500 pounds and, stand 79 inches tall. So, almost 7 foot tall, another very cool thing about them is they climb trees and, built platforms to store food on pretty cool, sounds like a smart bear. Sadly the spectacled Bear is vulnerable.

Yes, I hope we can save them, but we have already done so much damage.

@TRBRocks420 There are some who are trying to change things but there is so much damage done. All we can do is hope and pray that they will find a way

@TRBRocks420 TO be quite honest with you I am distracted. Partially why I've hardly been active tonight.

I've never heard of that kind of bear before. I have a question and it may seem dumb but I've never thought about it until literally right now, but do all kinds of bears hibernate?

I think most all Bears hibernate, except male polar bears, but I'm not 100 percent on that.

This is the first I've heard of the spectacled bear. From the name, I thought it was an ursus that wears glasses.

Never heard of this kind of bear. But sounds smart how they can climb trees and store their food there.

I've never heard of it, and since the closest I've been to South America is Panama, I haven't seen one. I'll have to look it up.

Not endangered, but close one step above being endangered at vulnerable.

Yes, it sucks and, as usual it's because of humans mostly, because they have no predators, except Cubs sometimes killed by Cougar's, if they get lost from Mom.

I have of heard another - the Spectacled Cobra. I think they can be aggressive if we run into their path - siva

Yes, the Cobra is very dangerous to anyone, but the Bear not so much, unless a Mom thinks you are going to hurt her babies, other wise they mostly avoid us.
