This enormous fossilized Cave Bear is the fossilized remains of a once free roaming cave bear from the Ural Mountains of Russia.
Cave bears often lived and died in caves found in the sides of mountains. Old cave bears would often go into caves to die. Some important cave discoveries have yielded layers upon layers of cave bear skeletons, some that are well preserved and some that are not. In some instances these cave bear finds go on for several hundred meters, these layers getting older as the miners dig deeper. It is interesting that some of these caves may have been used by several hundred, or even several thousand, generations of cave bears.
The cave bear could reach heights of over 3 meters (about 10 feet) when standing on its hind legs. This was surely a great, ferocious beast.
This cave bear's scientific name is Ursus Uralensis.
Perfectly preserved and awaiting a new home.
