Category: Black bears


A beautiful cinnamon black bear cub who is the sibling of the black bear cub I posted a picture of on June 15th.  This one was much more timid and took a lot of coaxing from the other cub to get it to come down from the tree and run deeper into the forest.  Black bears can have offspring that are either black, cinnamon (brown) or even white (aka, spirit bears in British Columbia).


This photo was taken near Calling Lake, about 2 hours north of Edmonton.  I was  on a quad when I interrupted a black bear mother and her two cubs.  The mom ran into the forest and the cubs climbed the nearest trees.  This baby bear climbed down the tree and ran farther into the forest, but turned around to see if his sibling was following.
