Watch this rock-climbing bear cub!

Mountain goats, youre on notice! Watch a brave little bear cub follow its mother up the face of a rock. The rock face was almost straight up. This video shows that bears can climb rocks.

Bears have been seen climbing trees and ladders before. But this is one of the first times bears climbing rocks have been recorded. It was caught by Stephanie Latimer. She calls herself a nature enthusiast.

She captured the moment while kayaking through Santa Elena Canyon. The canyon is in Big Bend National Park. The park is in Texas.

These are Mexican Black Bears. They are a subspecies of black bear. They are listed as endangered in Texas. They grow to weigh 200-400 pounds.

    This article was about a bear who was seen climbing on the face of a rock. This is a rare sight to see a bear climbing the face of a mountain like this they have been seen climbing trees and ladders before but never something like this. The sight was in santa Elena canyon in Texas. And it was spotted by a nature lover and found it while kayaking and the ear is a Mexican black bear that can grow up to 400 pounds. I think that it's good we are getting more information about these creatures.
