Black Bear Cub
Black bear cubs are born during the hibernation period in late January. When born, they weigh about nine ounces and are the size of a stick of butter. From this point on, they grow very quickly weighing 15 to 20 pounds by May and about 75 pounds by the end of the summer. A fully grown male black bear weighs about 300 pounds.
