Question - of -
How many bear cubs are usually in a litter?
How long do brown bears typically live in the wild?
Yep! That's right, great job! The oldest bear at our sanctuary lived to be 40 years old.
When bears stand up on their hind legs, it is usually a sign of what?
Yes, that's right! Bears stand up to get more information, using their sight, hearing and smell.
How much do bear cubs weigh on average when they are born?
Yes! Can you believe it?! Brown bear cubs are tiny when born, but grow up to be 90-150kg if they are female, and between 150-250kg if they are male!
The myth that bears can't run downhill is...
Correct! This myth is false. Bears can run just fine downhill, uphill and on level ground, even though their front legs are shorter than their hind legs!
