Bears are large mammals with thick fur that walk on all four feet. There are eight different species of bears found in all types of environments, from tropical rainforests to the icy-cold polar regions. Thick fur coats give bears a fuzzy, friendly appearance, but all bears are very powerful. They are much stronger and can run faster than humans. Polar bears can run at speeds up to 55 kph! Six bear species are endangered. Many people would like to see a bear in the wild but not up close!
