Grizzly Bear Cub sibblings

The grizzly bear (Ursus arctos horribilis), also known as the silvertip bear, is a subspecies of brown bear (Ursus arctos) that generally lives in the uplands of western North America.

Grizzlies are normally solitary active animals, but in coastal areas the grizzly congregates alongside streams, lakes, rivers, and ponds during the salmon spawn. Every other year, females (sows) produce one to four young (commonly two) which are small and weigh only about 500 grams (one pound). A sow is protective of her offspring and will attack if she thinks she or her cubs are threatened.

Grizzly size and weight varies greatly according to geographic location. Inland bears, particularly those of the Yukon region, may weigh as little as 300lbs for adult males. The largest populations are found in coastal areas where weights are typically 500-750 lbs. Populations found in Katmai National Park and the Alaskan Peninsula may approach or just exceed 1000lbs, indeed some specimens rival the Kodiak bear in size and weight.

The current range of the grizzly bear extends from Alaska, south through much of western Canada, and into portions of the northwestern United States including Idaho, Montana, Washington and Wyoming, extending as far south as Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, but is most commonly found in Canada. There may still be a small population in Colorado in the southern San Juan Mountains.

This grizzly bear cub was born in Yellowstone National Park, USA. Endangered Species – Vulnerable
