Spectacled Bear

Spectacled bears are non-territorial, solitary animals, except when a female is with cubs, but can gather in areas where food is abundant.

Spectacled bears tend to be solitary animals and isolate themselves from one another in order to avoid competition.

Exceptions include females with cubs and small gatherings when food is abundant. Andean bears have been reported to gather in small groups to feed in corn fields or other areas where food is plentiful.

Because they have been observed to feed in small groups, it is unlikely that these bears are highly territorial. They are also shy, peaceful, and elusive, avoiding contact with humans.
