In Real Life

Ezo brown bear, now also known as Ussuri brown bear or black grizzly bear, is a subspecies of the brown bear or a population of the Eurasian brown bear. Its scientific name is now synonyms to Ursus arctos lasiotus (Ussuri brown bear). It is one of the largest brown bears, only slightly smaller than the largest subspecies, Kodiak Bear. Following the description of Kemono Friends franchise, this article will only focuses on the populations in Hokkaido.

Ezo Brown Bear as a subspecies has more or less the same appearance and behaviour as brown bear. It is however somewhat darker fur and bigger in size. The largest individual found in Erimo, southern Hokkaido in 2007 weighs up to 520kg. The bear inhabits the forests and wildernesses of Hokkaido. During the summer and autumn seasons, it extends its range into the mesic and alpine zones. From the end of the Edo Period to the beginning of the Meiji Period (1865-1868), the entire Hokkaido area was inhabited by this species, except for villages and certain islands.

There are now five regional subpopulations of Ezo brown bears recognized in Hokkaido. Of these, the small and isolated subpopulation of the western Ishikari has been listed as an endangered species in Japan’s Red Data Book. About 90 to 152 of them are thought to inhabit the West Ishikari Region and from 84 to 135 in the Teshio-Mashike mountains. Human activities such as road construction and forestry have limited their habitat. Excessive harvesting also hinders its population. In 2015, the Biodiversity Division of the Hokkaido government estimated the population to be as high as 10,600.


  • Ainu, indigenous people once populated regions including Hokkaido Island that are historically referred to as Ezo (蝦夷), worship Ezo Brown Bear through eating its flesh and drinking its blood as part of a religious festival known as Iomante (イオマンテ). In Japanese, the ceremony is known as "sending off the bear" (熊送り, kumaokuri) or, "the bear festival" (熊祭, kumamatsuri). The ceremony now no longer involves any animal sacrifice, but is performed for wild animals that die in accidents or captive animals that die of old age.
