Brown bear cubs (Ursus arctos) are born hairless in their dens in January or February. Litters range from one to four, but two cubs are most common. Cubs emerge from the den in the spring and quickly gain weight. They are a bundle of energy, curious about their environment and gain strength and agility through play. This helps develop the skills necessary to survive on their own by the time they are three years old.
