How long can a bear go without food?

    During hibernation, they can be without food in a reduced function state for up to 7 months – depending on the species. In hibernation they are using about 1/5 of their normal energy.

    It depends on the bear. Amazingly a Black Bear can go into hibernation for 100 days without eating, drinking, defecating, urinating, or exercising. We are still curious as to how they can do this and still be healthy as a horse or more appropriately healthy as a bear.

    When they are not hibernating they eat a lot. Being omnivores they can eat lots of different foods; fruits, nuts, berries, even meat. During the Summer and Fall is when they are bulking up for the winter and eating the most.
