Florida has Black Bears. They are the smaller variety, generally only weighing up to 300 lbs. A few males have been known to become larger, maybe 600 lbs.
I, sometimes drive through a remote area of U.S. 19 posted "Bear Area Next 12 Miles". I worry that if the car breaks, or something ,I might encounter a female with cubs. I always have my .357 magnum with me. I would switch loads to JSPs if if I needed to, and wish I owned a .44 mag. LOL
Here is a link about Florida black bears. http://www.beachtobay.org/html/florida_black_bear.htm And one about black bears, in general. http://www.defenders.org/wildlife_and_habitat/wildlife/black_bear.php
