Bears in Arizona

Bearizona is located in Williams, Northern Arizona in the Kaibab National Forest. The park has mountain goats, bison, bears and wolves. Bearizona is approximately 160 acres in size. Most of the bears in the park are active year-round. The black bear typically has a life span of 20 years in the wild and can be found in 49 of the USA’s 50 states. Despite their name, not all black bears are black – they can be light or dark brown and, on the rare occasion, even white. Female bears will bear between one and six cubs during their lives. The American black bear is the world’s most common bear species. These omnivorous bears are often found in areas with relatively unfriendly terrain, thick vegetation and large quantities of food.
