Bears are mammals that can be found throughout North America. Eating mostly plants and insects, black bears are common in forests and swamp areas. Black bears may be brown or black. Grizzly bears are larger than black bears and have a large hump on their back. They also have a dished-in face. The photo on the right is a grizzly bear.
