Katmai National Park and Preserve, Alaska. This large male brown bear we called "snaggletooth" because one tooth was broken. Here he just caught a salmon.
Brown Bears have coats often tipped with a lighter color, giving a "grizzled" appearance. They also have a large lump of muscle above their shoulders. That muscle gives them great strength in their forelimbs. The Grizzly Bear is a sub-species of the Brown Bear. Brown Bears can weigh up to about 1500 pounds and can run at speeds of 35 miles per hour.
