I have purchased 6 cubs - different sellers - different years - and the sellers have pulled the cubs in late March or early April. They are from 4 to 5 pounds usually at that age. They are easy to convert to a bottle then and are really easy to handle. If you get them too much younger than that it just means more work for you. Even at 5 pounds, they need feeding about 5 or 6 times a day. That's my experience!

congratulations dave c

I also think it is about 5-6 weeks.

one thing, I would like to mention, make sure they are bottle fed by you for a few weeks before selling them, unless they are going to someone that already has or have had bears.
basically, only to people that have experience or alot of understanding what it is like raising bear cubs.

(pet lover is an exception to this, she has the experience and does very well with her bear)

if you do sell your cubs to people that has never had experience with bears, please give them some type of care sheet.
you are welcome to use the basic care sheet I have on this site.

I see too many people that buy exotics, then once they grow, they are stumped on what to do with it :cry:

please keep us updated on the cubs, would love to see pictures.

the first three(most current) pictures are so very adorable.
I didn't crop any of them, the background is really great.

I've not given alot of thought to all the different bear breeds. I guess I'd have to go with black just because they are smaller. I have had giant breed dogs before but a small bear is still a bear. I have to be careful around here in the spring how early in the season I put out the bird feeders. A few years I put them out too early and had bears in my back yard that demolished feeders, and a few of my shepherd hooks were bent down to the ground. I never actually saw the bears in my yard but I have seen the foot prints in the mud and the muddy foot prints on the concrete patio. And if that wasn't enough my dogs spazz out when I let them in the yard in the morning. I cant get em back in for @ least an hour, they must smell every square inch multiple times.

It's pictures like this that make me glad bears are Class I here. It'd be so tempting. What cuties.

My favorite is sloth bear but you can't actually get them :(. They don't get very big and are mostly a bear version of an anteater, they are insectivores, and carry their young on their back. They would make good large pets.

Because the wiki photos don't do them justice http://2.bp.blogspot.com/--bXy4dnoxKc/T ... hbear2.jpg
