Bears vary greatly in size and habits. The smallest weighs around 100 pounds - about the size of a large dog. The biggest bear, the Kodiak, is a type of brown bear that can weigh 1,500 pounds!
Most bears are carnivores or omnivores, meaning they eat meat or a combination of meat and plants.
The panda, however, has a diet exclusively of the large bamboo grasses.
Look out! The bear in this drawing tutorial is angry and growling! Did you meet him in the wild, or is he safe within a zoo enclosure? The choice is yours as you set the scene.
