  • The moon bear is also known as the Asiatic, Tibetan, and Himalayan black bear. Their habitat includes Southeast Asia, southern China, and bordering countries. It is also found as far north as Korea and Japan.
  • The moon bear has medium length jet black fur that is shaggy in the front and sides. Sometime their color is dark brown to chocolate. They display a magnificent crescent moon pattern on their chest that stands out against their dark body. Sometimes the area around their muzzle and near their nose is white.

  • A husky body with round eyes and a medium sized head is typical. These gentle animals have round Micky Mouse style ears that pop up to capture subtle noises. When they stand on their hind legs their ears are erect and they sway their arms for balance.

  • They live in different types of dense forests including mountain ranges, bush flats, and meadows.

  • Asiatic black bears are social at birth and engage in much play. However when they reach adulthood and head out on their own they lead solitary lives. There is a short courtship period prior to mating.

  • Moon bears average 200 to 300 pounds. They are about five feet tall. Females tend to weight slightly less than males. Size is dependent on factors of their particular habitat such as food supply, season, and climate conditions.
