black bear

The animals grouped here as carnivores are bound by only one thing: they eat meat, that is, they eat other vertebrates. Many are also omnivorous and supplement their diets with a great deal of plant material (the bear to the right was munching on dandelions).

The local carnivores range over a great many families—cat, skunk, weasel, raccoon, bear, dog—and a corresponding range of sizes from the grizzly bear to the weasel. I have recorded very few of them as yet.
