Mama Knows Best, Baby Black Bear Learns the Ropes

baby black bear

“Mama knows best,” is one statement that rings true for both two- and four-legged species alike.

For a baby black bear, there’s no one better to learn the ropes from than dear old mom.

Bears cubs are born blind and helpless during mid-winter. As spring begins to bloom, they emerge from their dens and stay with their moms for about two years after birth.

Watch as this baby black bear learns everything he needs to know about surviving in the North American foothills.

Warm, fuzzy adorableness aside, there is a lesson to take away. Don’t mess with a baby black bear unless you want to face the wrath of  his protective mama.
