Spectacled bears are also known as Andean bears. They're native to South America & are in fact the only bears found there. They grow to an average standing height of 6'. The spectacled bears are generally black but sometimes brown or reddish brown in color with patches under their necks or encircling their eyes. The males can weigh up to 440 lbs & the females can weigh up to 181 lbs. Their snout is shorter than most bears. Out of many, they're the only remaining short faced bear species.
