As we know, bears are portrayed to enjoy honey, especially the famous bear, Winnie the Pooh. But do they really have such a sweet tooth?
The rumours about bears liking honey are in fact true! Bears do enjoy a snack of honey when they can find a hive, in spite of the challenge of swarming bees that come with it!
But unlike in Winnie the Pooh, the bears eat more than just honey. They will also consume the bees and larvae inside the beehive, which are a good source of protein, and both brown, and black bears will raid beehives.
But bears don't only eat beehives and honey! They are quite partial to numerous of other sources of food.
Polar bears eat mostly fat and meat, including seals and other marine mammals. Grizzly, and black bears eat mostly vegetation, insects, berries, and meat, especially salmon and young moose, and deer.
