Florida spectacled bear

The Florida spectacled bear (Temarctos Floridanus), also known as the Florida short faced bear or Florida cave bear, is an extinct subspecies of the spectacled bear native to the Southern USA and lived 4.9,000,000 years-11,000 years. It became extinct 11,000 years ago at the end of the ice age. It was a prehistoric ancestor of the Andean spectacled bear (Temarctos Ornatus) of South America. The Andean spectacled bear is the last remaining short faced bear. This is probably a live restoration of a Florida spectacled bear.
