Grizzly bear Spring, Alaska #4503


A young male grizzly bear eating willow roots excavated from a rocky slope in the Alaska Range Mountains. In spring, bears search out any food source available, digging roots and chasing ground squirrels occupies their pursuit of food. Weeks may pass between emergence from the den and when the spring green-up provides plentiful food. Horsetail, or equisetum, is an early plant avidly consumed by bears in spring. Until then, omnivorous bears will eat almost anything they can catch or excavate.
