  1. 1. Spectacled (Andean) Bear Studied By GB
  2. 2. Physical Characteristics Spectacles Bears have thinner hair than most bears because of it’s warm climate The Male bear can be 30% to 40% larger than the female This bear is the smallest bear of it’s family. The average size is 5 to 6 feet in length and weighs 220-340 pounds.
  3. 3. Reproduction The amount of young born at a time is usually two but maybe one or three.
  4. 4. Diet Primarily: Herbivore Generally: Omnivore Zoo Diet: A spectacle bear living ina zoo is fed dry food mixtures called chow, vegetables, fruit, and sweet potatoes.

  5. 5. Natural Habitat They are part arboreal and part terrestrial because they can live in caves on the ground or shelter in trees.
  6. 6. Behavioral Adaptations for the Spectacled Bear Spectacled Bears are highly adaptable. Meaning they can adapt or live in a variety of places and habitats. This aids there survival because it gives them a larger variety of food and shelter so if something happens to their home they have another place to live. Spectacled Bear makes stick platforms in trees This aids survival because it helps them get food and some sleep on it for a temporary shelter. Spectacled Bears are part arboreal. This aids survival because it gives them defense from predators and gives them a larger variety or quantity of food.
  7. 7. PhysicalAdaptations Spectacled Bears havelong claws which allow them to climb trees. Thelong claws allowing them to climb trees aid theirsurvival by giving them shelter, food, and defense. Long claws ingeneral aid their survival because it gives them defense. Thespectacled bear has strong jaws and flat molars. This aids their survival because it helps them chewtough vegetation allowing it to eat its food. Thinfur is also an adaptation of the Spectacled Bear. This aid survival because intheir hot or warm habitat they are able to keepcool and maintain their body temperature. Spectacled Bears havelarge noses that give them a good sense of smell. Theirgood sense of smell aids survival by letting them smell a predator coming(defense) and by letting them smell food. Theirsmall size (compared to other bears) allows them to climb trees easier. Thembeing able to climb trees aids their survival by giving them a better supply of food, defense, and shelter.
  8. 8. Improvements to The Zoo Habitat I like how the habitat has a large pile and area of vegetation because the spectacled bear is a herbivore. I think the habitat should be a field because even though the spectacled bear is highly adaptable, it never lives on and island like land.
