Unlike yesterday’s post there is no need to explain that this is a large grizzly bear. It just is!
Weight: males: up to 2,500 pounds (1,120 kg) females: up to 770 pounds (350 kg) pups: about 35-50 pounds (16-22.5 kg)
Length: males: about 10-11 feet (3-3.4 m) females: about 7.5-9.5 feet (2.5-3.0 m) pups: about 3.3 feet (1 m)
The morning run up Knight Inlet on the grizzly bear tour is always interesting. It is a spectacular view, the lodge is located approximately 20 miles from the mouth, and the grizzly viewing area starts another 25 miles up the inlet, which is about 90 miles long. Eagles are abundant on the morning run this one being in the Glendale estuary the primary grizzly bear viewing area. Eagles are not always in trees it is not uncommon to watch them pick up a fish from the water and then land on shore to eat the “catch of the day”. Grant and Judith Fuller of Bangor NSW Australia provided the photos of the inlet and bald eagle.Visit our Blog
