Black bear in Banff National Park

A cinnamon-coloured Black Bear ambling along in Banff National Park. Although Black Bears (Ursus americanus) are generally black in most of North America, it is not unusual to find a high proportion of cinnamon phase black bears in the west. Inexperienced observers sometimes mistake them for grizzlies at a distance.
