Black Bear

Bears are a lot like people; temperamental, moody, omnivorous, and intelligent. Each bear has its own personality that distinguishes it from other bears with their own individuality and quirks. An interesting thing about bears is they used to roam vast ranges. People don't thing about it but bears used to roam the plains, and from coast to coast. In fact California has so many bears, the state flag has a bear on it. Today bears only live in small pockets of their former territories. They are both feared an revered and theri intelligence gets them into trouble when they find easy meals provided by people. This design is of  abear emerging from hibernation, awakening to new possibilities.
