Why are the brown bear and the giant panda special in the bear family?

       Both these bears are special and unique in terms of their habitat. Among the various bears, brown bear is the most widespread species. They are found in various regions from Western Europe to Asia and the western areas of North America.

       The habitat of the giant panda, on the other hand, is heavily dependent on the availability of bamboo, whose shoots are their favourite food. However, they are nowadays found only in China. The giant panda is the least common among all species of bears.

       The American blank bear is restricted to North America; the spectacled bear lives in south-America and the polar bear is confined to the arctic sea. All other bear species are found only in Asia!
