They are extremely small especially when compared to other ursids and are similar in life style and appearance to that of the Bush Baby Lemur. They possess wide mouths which they can close to look much smaller and possess elongated serrated fangs throughout their mouths rather than more omnivorous teeth like modern bears. Their snouts are short and pointed, bending upwards and tipped with a small padded nose. Their ears are short and rounded and can fold onto the sides of their head.

Their eyes are large and round and red in color with large pupils to match.

Their necks are short to non existent and run into their rectangular bodies seamlessly. The contrast from head to body ratio give them the appearance of a pear or other form of fruit in order to camouflage into their environment.Their legs are short and are tipped with 3 clawed fingers and toes.

Their tails are long and prehensile and covered in short fur allowing them to hang on to the roots of trees similar to modern day opposums.

Behavior

The Bear Pear is highly social and live in packs, all hanging upside down and sleeping together similar to modern bats. They are nocturnal and sleep during the day using the roots for shade to allow them to look around if needed. If a foe is detected by them they will watch it collectively, only moving when the foe is not looking at them and watching it as it moves past them. If the foe turns to look at them they will swivel around so their backs are facing them so as to not raise any alarms of the foe. If they need to they will intimidate the foe by bearing their fangs and making eerie ringing noises.

In the Movie
