Description

FAA WATERCOLOR MARK DOES NOT APPEAR ON FINAL SALES
While at the Queens Zoo, which was built during the Worlds Fair that was held in New York from 1967-1968 and is located on the Worlds Fair grounds today in Queens, New York. The zoo is home to mainly a specifc group of animals that live in the northern part of North America, Canada and Scotland. This photograph was taken of the Speckeled Bear who gets his name because of the lighter color fur around his eyes giving the impression he is wearing glasses. There are two of these bears at the zoo and one of the things that impressed me the most about this zoo is how they have strived to keep all of the animals comfortable and making them feel and look like they are living in their natural habitats. The Spectacled Bear is the only bear native to South America and is technically the largest land carnivore on that continent, although as little as 5% of its diet is composed of meat. South America's largest obligate carnivore is the jaguar. Among South America's extant, native land animals, only the Baird's and South American Tapirs are heavier than this species. The Spectacled bear is a mid-sized species of bear. Overall its fur is blackish in color, though bears may vary from jet black to dark brown and to even a reddish hue. The species typically has distinctive beige-coloured marking across its face and upper chest, though not all Spectacled bears have "spectacle" markings. The pattern and extent of pale markings are slightly different on each individual bear and bears can be readily distinguished by this. Males are a third larger than females in dimensions and sometimes twice their weight.[5] Males can weigh 100 � 200 kilograms (220 � 440 lb), and females 35 �82 kilograms (77 � 181 lb).[6] Length can range from 120 to 200 cm (47�79 in), with a tail length of a mere 7 cm (2.8 in), and shoulder height from 60 to 90 cm (24�30 in). Compared to other living bears, this species has a more rounded face with a relatively short and broad snout. In some extinct species of the Tremarctinae subfamily, this facial structure has been thought to be an adaptation to a largely carnivorous diet, despite the modern Spectacled bears' herbivorous dietary preferences.
