Did you know there were bears in South America?

I just learned that yesterday.

It’s known as the spectacled bear (or oso de anteojos, if you’re Spanish speaking). The fictional Paddington bear (who had a prominent role in my early childhood) was a spectacled bear, unbeknownst to me at the time. And so Brits sometimes call the spectacled bear the Paddington bear.
