Black bears (Ursus americanus) love dandelions too. All black bears are not black. This is what is known as a cinnamon black bear. It is simply a color phase, like being a redhead with a brunette for a sister. It makes it a little harder for the not so black to be properly identified though! Calcite Cliffs, Yellowstone.
