Florida Black Bear in the Scrub

We had a little visitor this Mother's Day. I made her a bit nervous, but I was allowed to follow her for a ways into the scrub. The trick to walking with bears is to know the right distance to follow. If you get too close too soon, they will take off!

You are really going to follow me???





Look both ways. Roads are very dangerous for bears.


The Florida Scrub here is chock-full of bears




More bear pictures from the scrub

I know...I know..you want cubs. Here are some in our napping tree.

Nice closeups from another holiday bear

Of course for the best book featuring Florida black bears, check out Olivia Brophie and the Pearl of Tagelus!
