The Bears inhabit forested areas in hill and mountainous regions.

The Bears prefer thickly forested areas in the hill and mountains; also tropical forests below alpine levels. During the summer the Bears may reach the altitudes of 1,000 feet. Their territory ranges from 4 to 6 square miles and it depends on the food supplies.

Asiatic Black Bears - Food and Diet

As with other Bears, the Asiatic Black Bear likes to eat meat; it is the food that is the most nourishing. They have been forced to eat plants, berries, insects, invertebrates, small vertebrates, and carrions, due to changes in their habitat, which is largely caused by human invasion. But, the main factors that influence the Bears' diet are climate and geographical location. Also, in places like Japan other mammals are not available as a food source. Overall, the Asiatic Black Bears will eat anything that is edible. Unfortunately, in many areas farmers loathe the Asiatic Black Bears for killing their domestic animals.
