Trivia[edit]

  • Arctodus is an extinct genus of bear that lived during the Pleistocene epoch. They inhabited North America and died out about 11,000 years ago. Two species are known; Arctodus simus and Arctodus pristinus. In real life, Arctodus differed from the in-game version by having an unusually short snout for a bear. The short snout gives them the common names "short-faced bear" and "bulldog bear".
  • Appearance-wise it bears a strong similarity to another extinct sub-family of bear called Hemicyoninae often called "dog-bears" that lived during the Oligocene through Miocene epochs.
