The American black bear is a lot smaller than its brown brother, the brown bear or grizzly bear. This species is often seen in the forests. And near people, such as campgrounds, suburbs, and garbage places. This is the only species in the world that is growing in numbers. The reason; he adapts to man.

Where can I see a black bear?
