Spectacled Bear

Like all bears, spectacled bears have a plantigrade stance with longer front limbs than hind limbs that give them excellent climbing abilities.

Like all bears, spectacled bears walk on the soles of their feet and are equipped with a plantigrade stance.

Their front limbs are longer than their hind limbs, giving them amazing climbing abilities. Spectacled bears are excellent climbers and spend a fair amount of time in trees.
