Himalayan bear

Himalayan bear is a species of mammal from a number of predators. In the Himalayas in summer it lives at an altitude of 3000-4000 m, in winter it descends to the foot of the mountains. The Himalayan bear is almost twice the size of a brown bear and differs from it by a more slender physique, a thin pointed nose, and large rounded ears; forelegs stronger than hind legs. Males of this species are 150–190 cm long, about 70–100 cm high at the withers, and weigh 80–200 kg with an average weight of about 135 kg. Females are noticeably smaller - adults weigh 40-125 kg, and large up to 140 kg.

Himalayan bear eats mixed food. Like other members of the family, it is almost omnivorous. The diet of a polar bear depends on the season. In the spring, it feeds mainly on last year's pine nuts and acorns. In summer, the polar bear eats green vegetation and insects such as ants. When berries and fruits ripen, they form the basis of his diet.
