Bears are found all over the world, primarily in the Northern hemisphere. The only bear found in the southern hemisphere is the Spectacled or Andean short-faced Bear of South America. Each geographic habitat supports a different species of bear. Polar Bears live in the cold arctic, on the continental shelf and the archipelagos.
The North American grizzly bear's territory ranges from Alaska to Mexico. The common Brown Bear, of which the grizzly is a sub species, claims Russia, United States and Canada for stomping grounds and shares United States and Canada territories with the American Black bear.
