Two varieties of bears are found on the Iranian plateau: the Eurasian brown bear and the Baluchistan black bear. The Eurasian brown bear is the most common of all bears. The brown bear varies in color from pale-yellow to dark-brown. Those in the Zagros mountains are paler, frequently with white on the shoulders or chest, and probably represent the form U. a. syriacus, or Syrian brown bear, a small pale form which is considered endangered and may be extinct outside Iran.
