    In the wild, polar bears live an average of 15 to 18 years, although biologists have tagged a few bears in their early 30s. In captivity, they may live until their mid to late 30s.

    The average life span of a brown bear is 20 to 25 years, and somewhat longer in zoos.

    In the wild, the black bear has the potential to live for about 30 years, but the average is probably lower.
