The Kermode bear, also known as the spirit bear, is a subspecies of American black bear found exclusively in Canada. Although you might think it at a glance, they aren’t albino or related to polar bears. Instead, Kermode bears have a special gene unique to the subspecies.
- Scientific Name: Ursus americanus kermodei
- Characteristics: Similar in temperament to black bears, Kermode bears are generally shy and avoid confrontation, depicted by this figurine’s timid gait. Hand-painted and professionally sculpted with superior quality, this figurine can serve a wide range of functions, from education to play.
- Size and Color:4.5 inches long and 2.5 inches tall, this model is a touch smaller lengthwise than a dollar bill stood on its side. Easily identifiable by its ghostly, cream-colored fur, it’s no mystery where this bear earned its nickname.
