What are black bear adaptations?

One adaptation of a black bear is eating many types of foods. This allows the subspecies to survive many habitats or in many extreme conditions- like in the temperate forest.

Black bears exhibit several remarkable adaptations. One of these is termed "delayed implantation." An adult female will carry a fertilized egg in her womb for many months. The egg is ready to attach itself to the uterine wall and begin developing into a fetus, but it does not do so until the female's body gives some unknown signal. This adaptation allows bears to time the birth of their cubs, so they are not born too early or too late. It also gives the mother a way out if food is scarce: If she has not accumulated enough fat by the time she settles into her den to hibernate, the egg will spontaneously abort. Some biologists see this neat trick as a natural mechanism to control population.
