Short Faced Bear

Short Faced Bear

Piece description from the artist

An unusual looking bear, the now extinct short faced bear, sits in the deep grass on the rocky shore of a prehistoric North American wetland. He faces to the right of the image, looking towards the rising sun which bathes in golden light. Some puffy white clouds drift lazily in the sky.

The short-faced bear, or Arctodus Simus, is an genus of bear that inhabited North America during the last ice age and went extinct about 10,000 years ago. It may have been the largest predatory land mammal of its day. Experts disagree on the exact nature of it's diet, but there is speculation that it would steal other predator's kills by using its intimidating size to run them off.
