The Olympic black bear (Ursus americanus altifrontalis) was first noted at Crater Lake, Oregon 1896 when a biological survey was made of the mammals in the area. It was recognized as a separate black bear species in 1903 by American Zoologist Daniel Giraud Elliot. Olympic Black Bear by wild trees is licensed under CC BY-NC-ND 2.0
