I found some info on spirit bears on instagrok.com and I made a web with the info on it. I also went to a website http://www.canadiangeographic.ca/kids/animal-facts/kermode_bear.asp. I learned that the Spirit Bear is actually called a Kermode Bear. I learned that the Kermode Bear's scientific name is Ursus americanus kermodei. Kermode Bears live in coastal rain forests on the islands off British Columbia's coast. They eat plants berries and mostly salmon. I think that this shows why the Spirit Bear in the book didn't eat or try to eat Cole.
