The weight of the largest instances reaches 600 kg. Hair color varies from pale brown to dark brown, and some animals visible yellow and black tones. The bear is omnivorous. Generally the diet includes nuts, berries, tubers and carrion. Sometimes preys on ungulates. Baikal bears masses come ashore to eat insects and caviar of goby fish.
