PIROSLIFE reveals the secret life of bears

The PIROSLIFE project has released new images of brown bears (Ursus arctos) in the Pyrenees. At the end of June, a female and two cubs were filmed by the PIROSLIFE monitoring team in the forests of the L’Alt Pirineu Natural Park in Catalonia (Spain). These youngsters are the offspring of brown bears released in the Pyrenees to re-introduce the animals to this region. The video shows the cubs climbing a tree trunk, and even descending it head first, behaviour more typical of squirrels that has not been observed previously in the Pyrenees.
