The White Bear
The bear in the photo is a Kermode bear, also known as a spirit bear or ghost bear. It is a rare white morph of the North American black bear. Kermode bears are found in the coastal rainforests of British Columbia, Canada. They are thought to be the result of a recessive gene that causes their fur to be white. Kermode bears are omnivorous and their diet consists of salmon, berries, insects, and other small animals. They are an important part of the coastal rainforest ecosystem and play a role in dispersing seeds and nutrients.
