    Grizzly Bears sounds awesome. I would love to see grizzly bears with different personalities like the pandas. Some are more aggressive than others and some are more friendlier than others (In real life, not so much)

    I'm still hoping for Grizzlies, love Grizzly bears. Although I really wish Polar Bears and if they add them Grizzly Bears were hostile by default.

    Good idea. Grizzly bears could also hunt or just eat salmon like pandas eat bamboo, and black bears could eat berries.

    Also bears in the forest should have some interaction with Bees

    Grizzlys should also spawn in forests, extreme hills, and rarely plains. Black bears should have the same spawn locations.

    Also I think increasing the size of the polar bear is necessary because they are the biggest bears on earth and are 6 feet from paw to shoulder.

    Also making polar bears aggressive would be a good idea because one of the reasons the shark won't be added is because mojang is worried kids would approach sharks in real life if they were added to minecraft. Making sure kids don't approach polar bears is also a good idea.

    Yup! I also add a little more details: Grizzly Bears are also spawns in Forest. They have a same behavior and drops as polar bears are.

    They should have grizzlies, black bears, polar bears, and pandas.

      Since they're adding bees now, it's the perfect time to add grizzly bears along with some mechanic for them to eat honey and interact with the bees!

    Black bear in one of the forest or woodland

    Grizzly bears could go after honey now that it's in the game, spawn on taigas and be neutral mobs and black bears could eat sweet berries and fishes while swimming ( they love swimming ), be agressive and be a little smaller than the grizzly bear

    yes, brown bears could be a rare spawn and provide a threat in the overworld that doesnt only spawn at night. it would break up the safe and passive gameplay during the day, if exploring and a bear jumps at you.

    Here's more information about the grizzly bear:

    Their behavior is similar to polar bears but ...

    Spawning:

    • On any forest biome types

    Additional Behavior:

    • Since bees are already in Minecraft, grizzly bears will be their enemy.

    • Like undead mobs on turtle eggs, Grizzly bears destroy bees nest and hives.
    • When their health points are in half, they'll find and strip 3 blocks tall logs/woods (usually trees) to get the strength effect.
    • They do the same attack animation of polar bears when attacking players and mobs, destroying beehives, and stripping woods/logs.
    • They attack on any fish mobs (except pufferfish)

    This is a great idea since bees are coming maybe feed grizzly bears honey? We should also have sun bears (a small black bear) into jungles

    PLEASE. Other rare jungle Bears too, like Sun/Sloth/Spectacled Bears. Maybe Moon Bears for standard forests

    Dont make em aggressive, no one wants to have to kill Bears and Polar Bears are the most aggressive in real life and youre fine if you stay away from cubs

    Actually, we should just get Moon Bears and Grizzlies. Grizzlies to go with bees, neutral mob. Neutral Moon Bears because they're currently super abused in real life. Theyre put in tiny cages and have their stomach bile drained and paws cut off. They're a cute, left field and environmentally concious choice. (And they have huge ears)

    I think that bears should spawn in the opening of caves in the forest/taiga. You would venture into a cave like you normally would and wham! You see some bone blocks on the ground and a big brown/black bear about to maul you and chase you out of his home.

    I also like the variety idea, but i feel like they should be tameable with different foods.  (ex. Bamboo for panda, certain fish for polar bear, and if black bear added honey) would also need bear armor. Instead of jumping like a horse, possibly bite or swipe paw at mobs to the front. I know its bad but maybe drop bear meat if killed

    I feel like along with panda's and polar bears, a third bear variant with 3 different textures should be added. Simply the bear with the brown bear which is hostile, the black bear which is neutral, and the Yellow Bear (Pooh Bear) that looks like Winnie the Poo with a red shirt and gives you immunity to bee posion. Bees should naturally hate bears.

    I like this idea, having all types of bear under one spawn egg and then their variant be determined when spawned in a certain biome.

    Personally this is how I would do it.

    Black/Brown Bear: Medium bear variant forests & warm taiga only.

    Grizzly Bear: large bear variant, Forested Mountains, Warm & Cold Taiga only

    Blonde Bear: large bear variant, rare chance of spawning in cold taiga (essentially a polar & grizzly hybrid, because they do occur irl)

    Blue/Grey Bear: medium bear variant, rarest variant, spawns only in cold forests (black/brown bear & polar hybrid, these also occur very rarely irl)

    Polar Bear: large bear variant, uncommon in survival, icebergs, ice spike, and tundra biomes only.

    Giant Panda Bear: Large bear variant, Jungles with bamboo forests only.

    Sun Bear: Small variant of bear, found in jungles without bamboo forest only

    I think polar bears should be seen swimming and catching fish.

    Grizzly bears could be observed standing on river banks catching fish as they would naturally.

    Black bears could be able to climb trees as they would naturally.

    Etc...

    Bears aside from pandas could be bred using raw fish (excluding pufferfish), honey, or sweet berries as real bears tend to like all of these things irl. Since bears are also interested in our garbage irl, they could be attracted to composters and can be found rooting through full ones on rare occasion.

    I was thinking more unique bears like sun and moon bears and maybe even a pizzly where you breed a grizzly and a polarbear

    Maybe can grizzlys eat hony from the new bee update and could you make a sort of allience between bears and bees. Bears can maybe protect certain beehives or something like that.
