We have had limited encounters with the bears of Florida but the few are memorable.

The black bears are thriving in the Ocala National Forest but the road kill is a great concern. Unfortunatly Black bears are black and at night offer little warning.

The Large Kodiak Bears have had a tough time getting to the Silver Springs Park where they are now cared for with dignity and concern.

Watching a 1200 lb bear stare at a twig that he brought from the bottom of his pool is special.
