16" x 16" FRAMED “Louisiana Black Bear (Ursus americanus luteolus) - Threatened Species

16" x 16" FRAMED “Louisiana Black Bear (Ursus americanus luteolus) - Threatened Species

16" x 16" FRAMED ARCHIVAL PRINT with 12 x 12" Image (AS SEEN  ON DISPLAY):

“Louisiana Black Bear (Ursus americanus luteolus) is part of the Threatened Texas series and is an archival print of original artwork by Juliet Whitsett. 

WOW! There are 16 subspecies of American Black Bear. 

According to TPWD "At least two subspecies of Black Bear are thought to occur in Texas: the Mexican Black Bear (Ursus americanus eremicus) and the New Mexico Black Bear (subspecies U. a. amblyceps). Both are found in West Texas in desert scrub or woodland habitats within scattered mountain ranges, predominantly the Chisos and Guadalupe Mountains... The Louisiana Black Bear (subspeciesU. a. luteolus) is on the federal threatened species list."

Even though historically this bear denned in Texas, Mississippi, and Arkansas from what I have read, now there are only transient individuals who still visit those states from time to time.


There are 148 Threatened Species & 66 Endangered Species in Texas. Each palette & species is unique. I have sampled colors from images of actual Texas Threatened Species and created original art inspired by each group.⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠ ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠ 5% of the profits from this series enthusiastically goes to help Threatened & Endangered Species.
