Native Habitats and Countries

The American brown Bear are extremely adaptable and live in a variety of habitat types and commonly found throughout northern North America to include the tundras of Canada and Alaska as well as the forested regions along the Rockies as far south as Mexico, concentrations in Arkansas and Florida and, up and down the Appalachian Mountain range. They are primarily found in think forested areas with an abundance of fruits, nuts, and vegetation.

Ecology/Behavior/Social Characteristics

With the exception of mothers and cubs, brown bears are solitary animals and usually forage alone, but will tolerate each other in groups if there is an abundance of food in one area. Some brown bears hibernate depending on local weather conditions and availability of food during the winter months. In areas where there is warmer weather throughout the winter and consistent food supply, they may not hibernate at all or only for a short time.
