DID YOU KNOW: The Atlas Mountains was once home to the Africa’s only bear. The Atlas Bear, Ursus arctos crowtheri, was the only African bear to survive in modern times. Unfortunately it was hunted into extinction by the 1870s. Romans once used the bear for damnatio ad bestias, which translates to “condemnation to beasts”. It was a form of capital punishment in which the condemned were maimed by the bears on the circus arena or thrown into a cage with the animals.
