The average weight of a black bear is nearly two hundred and twenty to four hundred and eighty pounds. The females weigh nearly one hundred and ten to two hundred and seventy five pounds. Black bears have a coloured vision and their eyesight is very sharp. Even their ability to smell is also highly developed.
The Indian Black bear are omnivores. Their diet varies from season to season and on the availability of the food. In the fall season they have acorns, chestnuts, walnuts and other fatty foods. During the season they consume bamboo, raspberry, hydrangea and other plants along with rodent's caches of acorns. They have raspberries, cherries, grases and ants during the summers.
The Indian Black Bear mate from late May to early July. They give birth to two cubs at one time, which stay with their mother for nearly one and a half years. They are found in the Himalayan foothills at a height of less than 3,750 meters. The animal has been listed as one of the endangered animal since the population is rapidly declining.
