Program Description

The family of Bears comprises some of the world’s largest meat-eaters. Powerful, keen of smell, and able to run, climb and swim, bears can be terrifying predators. Yet bears are versatile, and those that live in the forests have adapted to a largely vegetarian diet. Even the massive grizzly uses its sharp eyesight mainly to distinguish between ripe and unripe berries. The Ultimate Guide shows you how the modern bear has evolved, and how different species, like the spectacled bear and the sloth bear, have adapted to their environments. You’ll observe China’s giant panda, with its highly specialized bamboo diet, and the polar bear, prowling the Arctic tundra in search of ringed seals.
