Ursus refers to the cave, the brown, and the grizzly bear. Fossil remains are usually of the cave bear. Itís characteristic include a skull with a high forehead, loss of the anterior premolars, and low-crowned cheek teeth with many tiny cusps on the crushing surfaces.
They lived in temperate wood-land and in winter they hibernated in caves. Many European caves have been found to contain extraordinary quantities of cave bear remains.
