How to use "Bear oak" in context?

Let's face it; bears are not the most photogenic animals. With their enormous bulky frames, shaggy fur, and generally unfriendly demeanour, they really don't scream "enjoy your vacation" in head-high, mountain-dwelling Technicolor. In fact, the grizzly bear-widely considered the prototypical bear-is probably the most recognizable and feared creature on the planet. But out in the wilds, where bears actually live, they can be quite magnificent.
