---------------------This fantastic Reaper miniature could represent any of the bears present during the Ice Age, as it´s not historically accurate: the well-known cave bear (Ursus spelaelus) and the not so known, but even larger, the short-faced bear (Arctodus simus).
---------------------The cave bear could reach almost 3 m tall and over 600 kg, being very similar in size to the current kodyak or polar bears. Inhabited the forests of Europe, where they had to compete with other predators (cave lions and neanderthals) for the caves they used as shelter during the winter. Despite being an omnivore, remains found evidence that their diet was mainly herbivorous.
El oso de hocico corto fue el mayor carnívoro terrestre de su tiempo, alcanzando los 3,5 m de altura ergido y 750 kg de peso. Nativo de américa del norte, al contrario que el oso cavernario, frecuentaba las llanuras y su dieta se basaba en la carne. Algunas teorías afirman que fue un depredador activo, mientras que otras lo consideran un cleptoparásito que aprovechaba su fuerza y tamaño para robar las presas a otros depredadores más pequeños que el (smilodon, león cavernario, etc.).
---------------------The short-faced bear was the largest terrestrial carnivore of its time, reaching 3.5 m in height erected and up to 750 kg in weight. Native of North America, unlike the cave bear, frequented the plains and his diet was mostly based on meat. Some theories say he was an active predator, while others consider it a kleptoparasite that used his strength and size advantage to steal preys from other predators smaller than he (smilodon, cave lion, etc.).
