The grizzly bear is a Northern American subspecies of the brown bear. These amazing giants have the tendency to be solitary pets-- with the exception of females and their cubs-- but at times they do congregate. Dramatic events of grizzly bears can be seen at prime Alaskan fishing spots when the salmon run upstream for summer season spawning.
The long guard hairs on their backs and shoulders often have white tips and give the bears a "grizzled" appearance, hence the name "grizzly." The correct scientific name for the species is "brown bear," however just coastal bears in Alaska and Canada are referred to as such, while inland bears and those located in the lesser 48 states are called grizzly bears.
Many grown up female grizzly bear weigh 130-- 200 kg (290-- 440 pound), while man weigh on typical 180-- 360 kg (400-- 790 lb). The typical overall length in this subspecies is 198 cm (6.50 ft), with an average shoulder height of 102 cm (3.35 ft) and hindfoot length of 28 centimeters (11 in). below picture grizzly bear
