Congrats to Jewel the Bear who is now a MOMMY!Female black bears give birth to two or three cubs in mid-winter, according to National Geographic. The cubs are blind and helpless at birth and stay with their mother for about two years.
Black bears, whose scientific name is Ursus americanus, are solitary animals most commonly found in forests. Despite their name, not all black bears are black. They can be brown, blond, bliush-gray, or even creamy white, according to the National Museum of Natural History website.
