Grizzly Bear on Autumn Tundra, Alaska #1099


This Interior grizzly bear wears his dense autumn coat, still growing in preparation for denning. In Alaska brown bears and grizzly bears are considered a single species, Ursus arctos, and often referred to as brown/grizzly bears. Bears living away from the coast are called “grizzlies” and are smaller than those that feast on summer salmon runs, although a few inland bears have topped 1,000 pounds. Inland grizzly bears gorge and fatten on berries and feed constantly until denning, layering on fat for the long winter torpor. Some far north grizzlies may stay in the den for almost seven months and without a fat reserve and thick coat, they would die over the long winter.
