Meet The Animal

These brown bears are considered Grizzly bears since they come from the lower 48 states. There are currently about 55,000 wild Grizzly bears in North America, most of which live in Alaska. Our bears could grow to be about 700-900 pounds and stand up to a possible 7 feet tall!

Their Behavior

Normally, Grizzly Bears are solitary creatures, but you can often find them in gatherings around rivers where salmon swim upstream for their summer spawn. Grizzly bears are omnivores. Their diet consists of nuts, berries, fruit, leaves, and roots. In addition to fish they also hunt other animals. Bears will eat large amounts of food in the fall so they can hibernate and have enough to sustain them through the winter.
