a mother bear teachers her cub how to hunt and survive in the wild
Food and protection.
Good question. To feign means 'to pretend'. So you're asking would a mother bear 'fake' an injury to protect her cubs? No, but a mother bear would protect her cubs so fiercely… that she would risk death for them.
A mother bear will keep her cub close to her for about 17 months.After the 17 months, the cub will be big enough to learn to livelife as a bear.
The bears make dens in snowbanks in preparation for the birth of their cubs. Cubs are usually born in the Winter and stay in the den until Spring when they emerge with their m…other. The mother feeds the cubs milk for 2 to 2 and a half years during which time she protects them and teaches them to hunt their own food. During the whole period in the den (4 to 8 months) the mother does not leave to eat or drink. When the family comes out of the den in Spring, the mother hunts for seals to break her fast.
I really dont know
they are very protective of their cubs
for one and a half years.
VERY. To the death.
Normally they don't, as they're more concerned about taking care of their own cubs than another sow's cub or cubs. But on the occasion...
A couple years, I believe.
Female bears are very protective of their cubs. Anything perceived as a threat to their safety would be attacked. Never approach a female with cubs!
For about a year and a half. (17 months)

Yes. By mimicking their mother, the cubs learn to be self-sufficient.
In Animal Life
The cubs stay with the mother bear for 2-3 years, nursing while they are with her. As they grow older, they nurse less as they learn how to hunt. Eventully, the mother bea…r drives them away. For more information, visit the Related Link.
