Alaska Brown Bear, Katmai, #1943-2V


An Alaska brown bear on the Katmai National Park coast. Alaska Peninsula bears spend much of their time in early summer grazing tidal flats or clamming. The first salmon runs begin to develop in late June and persist until early autumn when bears turn their feeding focus to berries. The dietary combination of rich protein and bountiful berries allows bars to pack on the weight necessary to survive hibernation. In the maritime zone, hibernation periods are shorter than in the high arctic, yet bears still need good fat reserves to survive torpor and the lean spring season.
