Mix the sunglasses face emoji with the bear emoji and you’ll get something close to a creature known as the Andean Bear. Serving as the inspiration for the beloved character Paddington Bear, the Andean Bear (also known as the Spectacled Bear) is the only bear native to South America. Unlike Paddington, this bear eats more than just marmalade sandwiches: fruit, cactus, palm hearts, small rodents, birds and insects are all on the menu for the Andean bear. Still, after the Panda, it is the second most vegetarian bear species.
For the spectacled bear, home is the Andean cloud forest, between 6,000 and 8,800 ft above sea level. Since they love to climb trees, the Andean bear’s front legs are longer than their back legs to help them do so!
