Foxbears are a species of large carnivorous animals in the World of Hunter x Hunter. They are very territorial and mark their territories by scratching their claws on trees and will attack any human or animal entering without permission. Foxbears have characteristics of both bears and foxes, and are extremely hard to tame. Only one foxbear has ever been known to be friendly with a human, and he is Kon, the King of the forest on Whale Island, who was raised by Gon when he was still a cub. Even though the foxbears that have been shown so far all are inhabitants of Whale Island, it is unknown if they do not exist anywhere else.
