  1. Bears (A-Z Animals)
      "Most bears are nocturnal, solitary animals only really congregating during the bears mating season. The mother bear will then raise her cubs until they too, are old enough to live on their own. Bears generally have an excellent sense of smell and are also fantastic at climbing trees, swimming and are able to run at speeds of up to 35 mph for short periods of time."

      The sub-species of bears include: Asian Black Bear, Black Bear, Brown Bear, Giant Panda Bear, Grizzly Bear, Polar Bear, Spectacled Bear, and Sun Bear. 01-09

  9. Responding to a Bear Attack (CNN News)
      " 'That nanosecond before the bear hits you we recommend dropping to the ground and playing dead,' he said. 'Put your hands behind your neck so your elbows are protecting the sides of your face. Bears bite to the head and face a lot. By going passive usually they'll let you alone.' "

      " 'People shouldn't fear bears,' he said. 'They should respect them.' Respecting bears, Gunther said, means traveling in large hiking parties, leaving an area where bears are and carrying bear spray, a supersized can of pepper spray to ward off attacks."07-11
