Ever have one of those days? This black bear bides his time up a tree while a grizzly passes below. Black bears live throughout most on North America from northern temperate rain forests to the desert southwest to the rolling hills of eastern states.

A polar bear passes the time playing and rolling in the snow. Bears have an incredible capacity for play. As youngsters, play is vital in teaching the skills of hunting and survival as well as establishing social order among family groups. Polar bears have been known to romp and carouse with the likes of arctic foxes and even sled dogs.

Family Outing



A grizzly bear teaches her cubs the finer points of fishing by standing on top of a four-foot falls and snatching salmon out of the air as they try to jump the falls during the annual run. This is a learned behavior and is only one of the many techniques that grizzly bears use for catching fish.

A young grizzly is on the run after catching a salmon. Young bears are on the bottom of the totem pole when it comes to favorite fishing holes on salmon streams. When they do catch a fish, they usually have to move off the stream quickly to enjoy it. As bears mature and increase in size, they will be able to enjoy better fishing opportunities.

Lord Grizz

Lord Grizz



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.

A sow and cub share a light moment after filling up on forage. Humans have worshiped the bear from a time older than memory. Perhaps this fascination comes from the bear’s humanlike qualities. Like us, bears stand upright on the soles of their feet and have their eyes facing forward nearly in the frontal plane. They seem to worry with moans and sighs and court with obvious affection. Bears also snore in their sleep, teach, play, spank their children, are avid for sweets and can have a moody, gruff and morose side.

Rain Bears

Rain Bears



Three grizzly bear cubs wait patiently in the rain while their mother fishes nearby. Female grizzly bears can produce a litter of one to three cubs every three years. The majority of these cubs never reach adulthood. This low reproductive rate makes grizzly bears highly sensitive to changes in its environment.

Water Rites

Water Rites



Two grizzly bear sows give a mutual warning to stay away from each other’s cubs. These are usually short encounters, ending with little or no injury to both bears. These two females and their families find refuge in wilderness areas. There they live and thrive on a diet of salmon, roots, insects and berries. Content to be far away from the intrusions of humans, they have the space to be just what they are.
