Black Bear

The Black Bear (Ursinus thibetanus ) sub species gedrosianus has been mentioned to occur in historical times in Dhrun Mountain where it was attracted by Date Palms growing in the ravines.

Unfortunately there are hardly any good stories associated with this sub species of the Asiatic bear in Pakistan. It used to be widely distributed in the majority of Balochistan but now it is listed as critically endangered in Pakistan and extinct in most of the natural habitat locally. These bears have adapted well over centuries and are covered in an uncommonly thin coat as compared to the Asian black bear. The obvious reason for this is that, this species is located in a warmer climate than most essay writer of the other subspecies, which are native to the cooler Himalayan mountain regions.  This specie is omnivore but fruit are a preferred food type so they like to consume figs and bananas.
