European Brown Bear

These bears are not as simple as they seem. Today when looking up European Brown Bear, I found they are considered a subspecies of brown bear, which I already talked about with Grizzlies and Kodiaks. But look how many other subspecies of brown bear there are: Siberian Brown Bear, Atlas Bear, Gobi bear, Himalayan Brown Bear, Carpathian Bear, Marsican Bear, Mexican Grizzly Bear, Tibetan Blue Bear, Syrian Brown Bear, and Hokkaido Brown Bear! I’m not even going to ask why a bear labeled “blue” is in this group!

One last comment. My understanding is that brown bears have been extinct in England for 500 years!

Bearly done,
