Biggest Bear Ever!

Biggest bear ever

After re-examining a bear skeleton, found in Buenos Aires Province, Argentina, in 1935 paleontologists have discovered the largest bear to ever walk the earth to date!

The prehistoric South American giant short-faced bear, standing 11 feet tall, existed 2 million years ago and weighed up to 3,500 pounds.

Holy shiz! That's ginormous!

The team behind the discovery calculated the animals size after measuring its almost elephant-size humerus, or upper arm bone.

Compared to other carnivores in its time period, "there's nothing else that even comes close" and was the largest and most powerful meat-eater on land at the time.

Up until this discovery, the previous heavyweight champ was a North American giant short-faced bear—a related extinct species—that weighed up to 2,500 pounds.

As far as modern bears go, the largest on record was a 2,200-pound polar bear shot in Alaska in the 19th century.

Imagine running into that bad boy?

We'll pass!
