Bears 

Bears are carnivores and are found largely in the Northern hemisphere of the earth. There exist 8 species of bears out of which polar bears are complete carnivores, giant pandas feed solely on bamboo and the rest of the 6 species are omnivores enjoying a variety of diets. On average bears live up to 25 years in the wild and 50 years in captivity.

 

Well-known for their survival solution- hibernation, bears find a place to hibernate in winter when food is scarce and can go for 100 days without eating, drinking, or even defecating. However, feeding and nutritional requirements need feeders to provide them with a diverse diet that is rich in protein. While polar bears hunt seals, American black bears cherish berries, mealworms, and insect larvae. Sloths unlike their names are fast eaters and can eat up a full meal in a matter of seconds.

Asiatic black bears are comparatively more carnivores and like their diet filled with berries, seeds, fruits, small mammals, birds, fishes, insects, and yes! Honey! Even if only a small part of a bear’s diet includes meat, mealworms, and super worms, along with other insects form a great protein alternative for bears. Did you know? The largest bear is a subspecies of Alaskan brown bear that weighs as much as 720 kilograms!
