Grizzly cub like mother

Grizzly cub turning rocks

Grizzly bears in the spring and early summer spend much of their time on the beach in search of food.  Turning over rocks in the inter-tidal zone provides “food” high in protein. Food made up of crab, clams, muscles, barnacles, amphipods and other tiny invertebrates. In this photo mother is eating the muscles growing on the log and possibly some of the seaweed while the cub is trying very hard to turn over a good sized rock.  This is a July photo and the mother is still growing new fur that was rubbed off during hibernation.
