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)
Not hard to tell that this mother has a cub that needs to be nursed. We watched this mother and her cub eating berries at the top of the beach for about a half-hour, on one of the whale watching trips, before the cub moved into the bush and the mother on to the beach. The cub likely wanted to nurse but the mother was after more food while the tide was still low enough for her to turn over rocks.Visit our Blog
