  1. Baby grizzlies, born during hibernation, nestle with their mother and nurse for a month without waking her!

  2. Ursus arctos, the mighty brown bear, evolved about one million years ago, probably from the black bear family. Today a number of subspecies can be found around the world, including central Italy, Scandinavia, Russia, the Himalayas and Japan’s Hokkaido Island – though their populations are generally very small.

    North America has the grizzly, also known as the brown bear, or brownie in parts of Alaska and Canada. The grizzly bear gets its name from the light-tipped guard hairs that give them a “grizzled” look. The Kodiak bear, which is limited to an Alaskan island group, is sometimes considered a separate subspecies.
