A large boar grizzly “bears” the wounds of a successful breeding season. Some male grizzly bears, like this one, can weigh in excess of 1,500 pounds and can live for 30 years or more. Humans have long been fascinated by bears, perhaps because they have so many human-like qualities. Like us, they stand upright on the soles of their feet and have eyes facing nearly in the frontal plane. They seem to worry with moans and sighs, and court with obvious affection. Bears also snore when they sleep, spank their children, are avid eaters of sweets and have a moody, gruff and morose side.
