*Description[edit]*

Eurasian brown bear

The Eurasian brown bear has brown fur, which can range from yellow-brownish
to dark brown, red brown, and almost black in some cases; albinism has also
been recorded.^[2] The fur is dense to varying degree and the hair can grow
up to 10 cm in length. The shape of the head is normally quite round with
relatively small and round ears, a wide skull and a mouth equipped with 42
teeth, including predatory teeth. It has a powerful bone structure, large
paws, equipped with big claws, which can grow up to 10 cm in length. The
weight varies depending on habitat and time of the year. A full grown male
weighs on average no more than 250 and 300 kilograms (550 and 660 lb).^[3]
The largest Eurasian brown bear recorded was 481 kg (1,058 lb) and was
nearly 2.5 m (8.2 ft) long. Females typically range between 150–250 kg
(330–550 lb).^[4]
