What time of year do bears have cubs?



  1. 0 Votes

    Bears actually have their cubs during hibernation. Bears mate between May and July, but the fertilized egg doesn’t actually implant in the uterus until October or November. The cubs are then born sometime between January and March, just near the end of hibernation. There are usually 2 cubs in each litter, and they’ll stay with mom for up to 3 years.

      Just chiming in: remember that “bears” are a very varied group of animals. Many bears don’t hibernate at all. Some species, like the Asian sun bear, don’t hibernate at all. And others, like our N. American black bear, don’t hibernate consistently across their range. Indeed, in the southern part of their range (Florida, for example), they may not hibernate at all.
