Grizzly in Snow, Spring, Alaska #5153


Grizzly in Snow. Late Winter 5153


Grizzly in Snow, Spring, Alaska. Grizzly bears sometimes deal with spring snowstorms that make foraging for food difficult. Bears have an excellent sense of smell and can locate their food even in deep snow. Travel through snow requires a great deal of energy and takes a toll on hungry, underweight bears recently emerged from their den. Hibernation may last up to seven months and during that time bears do not eat, relying on layers of body fat built up the previous fall. Omnivorous bears eat almost anything, and this helps them get through until green up and the bounty of late spring forage.
