Bear Facts:
Although most are black in color; they can be white, whitish-blue, creamy -white, cinnamon, chocolate, or reddish brown.

Black bears can climb trees, swim, and travel 25-35 miles per hour at short stretches. They are an average weight of 300-400 pounds as adults.

Tyson was believed to weigh about 1,000 lbs prior to going into hibernation during the winter. The following year he died in the spring at a certified weight of 880 lbs. He was believed to be the largest black bear in the U.S. and possibly the world.
