Baby Black Bears

Two black bear cubs photographed in a tree root den taken near Mobile in 2017. Bears in Mobile have a difficult time finding dens because of the region's topography and because of human-caused habitat destruction. This one is located in a natural depression formed by the fall of a large tree but most bears in this area makes nests from vegetation in low-lying areas on the ground.
