The titan bear, Ursus giganteus, is the largest carnivorous mammal in the Neocene. Like the next largest, the grolar bear, the titan bear can eat both plants and animals but prefers flesh. Titan bears can weigh up to 2,200 lb. Titan bears are so large and powerful that they can bring down large prey. Adult mammoths and Steppe Elephants may be too large, but their calves are not. Titan bears bring down their prey by swatting it with their paws and then dispatching it with a bite to the back of the neck, breaking it. They have reddish-brown, almost russet, fur.
