Like many mammals, black bear cubs rely on their mother’s for protection early on in their infancy and stay with them for nearly 2 years before heading out on their own. However, don’t mistake them as being completely helpless – these cubs can climb trees to avoid predators!
Scientific Name: Ursus Americanus
Characteristics:Hand painted and expertly sculpted with life-like realism, this model makes an excellent gift for a nature enthusiast or collector, an addition to a diorama, or a toy for engaging and educational play. Be careful – this little one’s mother may come looking for it!
Size and Color: With a shadowy black coat and sandy brown nose, this accurately painted figurine captures the look of black bear cub perfectly. Only 3 inches long and 1.6 inches tall, this little one is a touch shorter than a deck of cards on its side, and certainly has some growing to do!

Despite the size of fully matured black bears, their cubs are rarely larger than a pound at birth. Black bear cubs are typically blind for up to 4 weeks, and can begin walking at 5 weeks. Until they’re about a year and a half old, cubs rely on their mothers for everything, including food, protection, transportation, and warmth. In fact, motherhood for a black bear is so demanding that they typically lose a third of their bodyweight caring for their young during the winter months. Talk about motherly dedication!
