The Asiatic black bear is primarily herbivorous. They feed on different parts
of plants at different times of the year to extract the most nutrients from those
parts. They feed on various nuts, raspberry canes, cow parsnip, butter bur and
hydrangea in the springtime, fruits, berries, and bamboo shoots in the summer, and
acorns, hazelnuts, chestnuts, pine nuts, beech nuts, and walnuts in the autumn.
