Katie the Cave Bear A A

The Cave Bear is an extinct species of bears that lived in Europe during the Pleistocene period. It became extinct after the last Ice Age. They are the ancestors of the Brown Bear that exist today.

We have a jaw bone of an ancient cave bear along with the partial molar still intact and large vertebrates from one of these creatures.
