The only bear in the Southern Hemisphere is the spectacled bear. It's usually 60 to 72 inches long, and is 23 to 32 inches tall at its shoulders. The male bears are generally larger than the female bears by about 40 percent. Males bears weigh 220 to 340 pounds and female bears weigh 140 to 180 pounds.
