The Asian black bear (Ursus thibetanus), is very similar to its North American cousins. A few of their differences are a smaller body, long hair ruff on either side of their face and the cream or white coloured “V” or crescent shape on their chest – hence the alternate name of moon bear. It is omnivorous, eating insects, fruit, nuts, bees and honey, small mammals, and birds as well as carrion. Asiatic black bears are found in the forests of Eastern Asia from Afghanistan to Taiwan and Japan, particularly in hilly and mountainous terrain.
