  • Like many mammals, black bear cubs rely on their mother’s for protection early on in their infancy and stay with them for nearly 2 years before heading out on their own. However, don’t mistake them as being completely helpless – these cubs can climb trees to avoid predators!

  • Scientific Name: Ursus Americanus
  • Characteristics:Hand painted and expertly sculpted with life-like realism, this model makes an excellent gift for a nature enthusiast or collector, an addition to a diorama, or a toy for engaging and educational play. Be careful – this little one’s mother may come looking for it!
  • Size and Color: With a shadowy black coat and sandy brown nose, this accurately painted figurine captures the look of black bear cub perfectly. Only 3 inches long and 1.6 inches tall, this little one is a touch shorter than a deck of cards on its side, and certainly has some growing to do!

  • History

    Despite the size of fully matured black bears, their cubs are rarely larger than a pound at birth. Black bear cubs are typically blind for up to 4 weeks, and can begin walking at 5 weeks. Until they’re about a year and a half old, cubs rely on their mothers for everything, including food, protection, transportation, and warmth. In fact, motherhood for a black bear is so demanding that they typically lose a third of their bodyweight caring for their young during the winter months. Talk about motherly dedication!

    Black bear cubs are born blind and nurse until spring, when the family leaves the den. Bear mothers are legendary for fiercely protecting their babies.
