  1. Impressive encounter, Sara! If I may ask, what is a cinnamon black bear? Is it a sub species? Posted 7 years ago
  2. Thanks Ferdy! It's not a subspecies, just some black bears can come from blonde to jet black. People easily confuse the cinnamon colored black bears with grizzlies and I can see why! Posted 7 years ago

The American black bear is a medium-sized bear native to North America. It is the continent's smallest and most common bear species. Black bears are omnivores with their diets varying greatly depending on season and location. They typically live in largely forested areas, but do leave forests in search of food.
