Did you know?

Twice the size of the modern bear, the giant short-faced bear was over 6’ at the shoulders when standing on all fours. The bear is believed to have tipped the scales around 2,100 pounds, and was capable of running 30-40 mph. It wandered South America and the North America plains 500,000-2 million years ago.
