Black Bear Taiwan Formosan Art

The Formosan black bear (Ursus Thibetanus Formosansus) – Taiwan’s largest predator and land animal – is endemic to Taiwan and cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The “Moon bear,” aptly named after its distinctive white crescent marking on its chest, has sat majestically atop Taiwan’s ecosystem throughout the ages. But in recent years, its reign has been usurped by the encroachment of modern man, who has continuously illegally poached the bears, severely exploited them, and driven them from their natural habitat. Hence, these bears have been pushed to near extinction.
