My illustration for Animal Alphabet, letter #A - Asian Black Bear.
This small Asian bear (Ursus thibetanus) is also known as the moon bear and white-chested bear and it has a V shaped light chest mark on the black fur (source: Wikipedia).
It is in danger of extinction now because of cutting down of the forests where it lives, but also their persistent use in traditional Chinese medicine is a big problem (source: konicaminolta ).
The Asian black bear considered "vulnerable" by International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and it is listed as a protected animal in China's National Protection Wildlife Law.
In my drawing bear and cub move towards an untouched wood.
