Romfilatelia introduces into circulation the postage stamps issue Bears.
Bears are part of the Order Carnivora that comprises carnivore mammals, rarely omnivores. These mammals are widespread around the Globe and have accustomed themselves to the most varied life environments: aquatic, terrestrial, or arboreal.
Because of the large number of species with various characteristics and different behaviors, Order Carnivora is divided into 2 suborders or super-families: Canoidea and Feloidea.
Super-family Canoidea reunites well known carnivores such as dogs, foxes, bears, badgers, martens, otters, hyenas, etc.
The stamps and the souvenir sheet of the philatelic issue  illustrate six bears whose habitat is located in different corners of the world.
The stamp with the face value of RON 0.60 presents the Malayan Sun Bear (Helarctos malayanus). It is also known as the coconut bear. Its waist is about 1,4 m and around 70 cm tall. Its black fur shows a white collar around its neck. It is a very skillful coconut climber. It lives in Sumatra, Borneo, and Malaysia.
The stamp with the face value of RON 1.20 illustrates the American Black Bear (Ursus americanus). It is also called the Baribal bear. With a waist of about 1,8 m and reaching around 1 m tall, it populates forested areas in North America. Its fur is black and shinny.
The stamp with the face value of RON 1.60 shows the Giant Panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca). It is also known as the bamboo bear. Its waist is about 1,5 m and it lives in  Central China forests and feeds with bamboo buds.

1,7 m and it is around 85 cm tall. It lives in the Southern Regions of India, in the jungle, going all the way to the Himalaya mountain range and into Sri Lanka.
The stamp with the face value of RON 5.00 illustrates the Spectacled Bear (Tremarctos ornatus). Its name comes from the drawing formed by the white fur surrounding its eyes, its fur being otherwise black. Its waist reaches 1,70 m, its height

The postage stamp of the perforated souvenir sheet with the face value of RON 9.10 illustrates the Grizzly bear (Ursus arctos). With a waist that can reach 2,5 m, height of
