Description

The Auvergne Bear was a common species of bear in Europe and China during the entire Pliocene, with several subspecies. It was a small Ursidae typical to forest areas, similar to the existing Asian black bear especially in terms of teeth, even though they were smaller. The Auvergne Bear was the first representative of the genus Ursus, the direct ancestor of the Black bear, the Brown bear and the Cave bear in Europe and North America. In Europe, it gives rise at the end of Pliocene (2.6 million years ago circa) to the Etruscan bear.
