These fascinating creatures walk on our lands for years, they are from some distant regions and mostly inhabit few places. While for many this species seems distant, others practically live with them in some places. Today we will talk about them in our blog, and despite they seem to be fluffy, they are much dangerous.
Which is the biggest Bear in the world?
Actually we should talk about two species, the Kodiak bear that are from the Kodiak Island by the way, in Alaska. It’s an animal who hasn’t a clearly defined size, it depends on each animal but the largest in the world could weigh 675 kg and in the bipedal position they reach the height of 2.85 meters, if we measure at the withers, they could reach 1.3 meters.
The bear is one of the biggest animals in the world and you’ll be surprise when you knew that they can run at 50km by hour, more than most of humans can do, and that the reason why you shouldn’t run if you see one around there. Despite this information, you should know that this specie is less aggressive than others but like any animal if they are in danger or feel threatened they will attack.
In fact there are two alternatives to do if you face a bear, and it depends on the specie, try to beat him strong in the snout with an object, or play dead and hope that the animal were not hungry and follow its path.
The Polar Bear is the other biggest bear in the world, a distant relative of Kodiak. As it name implies lives in the North Pole, and is the most powerful predator of these cold lands. It is estimated that separated from her brown relatives 150,000 years ago, and was responsible for engendering development this fantastic animal. One big difference are the molars, and it is estimated that this difference lies in the strong evolutionary pressure that led to the Pleistocene glaciations.
