Did you know that the bear is a common national personification for Russia (and the former USSR) and Germany? Also, the brown bear is Finland’s national animal.
Bears were often honoured in the cultures of many early civilisations. They were seen as a symbol of power, strength and love. They have excellent senses of smell, sight and hearing. They can smell food, cubs, a mate or predators from miles away. Their great eyesight allows them to detect when fruits are ripe. Beside that, they care deeply about family members. They will risk their lives and even fight to the death in order to save a cub or sibling from danger.
