Black bears in D&D are the smallest category of bear, used to represent black bears and other small, temperate-habitat varieties.
Physical Appearance[edit | edit source]
The fur of these bears can be pitch black to light brown, and is sometimes, depending on the species, adorned with colorful yellow or orange spots, especially on the chest.
Ecology[edit | edit source]
Less aggressive than the larger species of bear, and quite intelligent, black bears tend to be the most commonly domesticated breed. They live in warmer climates, but still can't tolerate the warmth of the tropics.
