The American black bear (Ursus americanus) is North America's smallest and most common species of bear. Black bears are omnivores, with their diets varying greatly depending on season and location. In Alaska they can be observed feeding on everything from dandelions and grass to fish and carrion. While 'blackies' tend to prefer the cover provided by dense forests, it's not uncommon to see them in the spring and summer feeding on open hillsides.
