    Default Brown Bear Fur ID?

    Hi everyone,

    I received a sample of fur that looks like it is from a Brown Bear, just wondering if you could let me know what you think.

    Thanks,
    Alex Northey

    Thanks for the replies. I got some better quality, closer pics. Doesn't feel like Fox does, and when examined closer, does look like Brown Bear fur. The first image I posted made it look a little softer than it actually is.

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    Are the hairs banded i.e. change color along the individual hair shaft? Id say fox too but the guard hairs are suspect.
