    Time to brush on zoology, here is a sample of the knowledge needed, from Bear Anatomy and Animal Facts

    The overall anatomy of a bear makes it simple enough to identify out there. Some of them are only about 66 pounds, like a male Sun bear, a male Polar bear can reach up to 1,500 pounds.

    Standing up, bears can range in height from 4 feet to 10 feet. This would be the case for a smallest male Sun bear, for the first and the largest male Kodiak or Polar bear for the later. The males of each species are taller and heavier than the females. Even though there are many differences based upon the species there is a basic design with the bear anatomy.

    Bears have powerful bodies that are very thick in the middle. This is due to the fact that most of them have to consume volumes of food when it is plentiful in order to store it up for the winter months. Those layers of fat also help to regulate their temperatures. Bears have thick fur that covers their bodies. This helps to keep them warm as well as to prevent insects from penetrating the skin.

    The claws of a bear are very sharp, and they will range in size. They often use these claws to capture prey and to climb trees. These claws are also retractable so they can get them out when they need them. The nose of bears may be small but they are very powerful. They can smell for miles around them.

    They usually walk on all fours due to their size. However, bears can all stand upright and they can walk at a much slower pace on their hind legs. Standing up though is a sign of aggression and so one needs to be very cautious when a bear is seen in such a stance. They usually get in this position to intimidate the danger they are facing.

    All bears walk on the soles of their feet rather than on the toes. This is a feature of their anatomy that stands them apart from all other carnivores. As they walk the weight of the body is continually shifted towards the back. This is why even the large species can often run at a speed of about 35 miles per hour for a short period of time.
