Ursine – English Vocabulary about Mammals

Ursine – English Vocabulary about Mammals

‘ər-ˌsīn (adj)


relating to bears or similar to them, typical of bears


Bears are stockily built and have relatively short legs, necks and tails. These are the main ursine characteristics of these mammals. They have rounded ears, strong curved claws and unusually small eyes for such large animals. Their teeth are large and pointed but not particularly useful for eating meat as they have lost their shearing ability.
