brown bear, also known as a grizzly in North America, is like
the bears in Brother Bear. They are large and are usually a dark
brown, but can be a creamy shade or black. They have long claws
on their front paws and have a hump on their shoulders.
Their weight depends on the food available and it is a fact
that bears can weigh twice as much in the autumn than in the
spring. The male adults weigh 135 kilograms to 390 kilograms.
Cubs at birth weigh 340 to 680 grams.
Brown bears occupy a wide range of places like in eastern and
western Europe, Northern Asia, Japan, Northern America, western
Canada, Alaska, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and Washington in forest
areas and central plains in mountains and tundra.
Brown bears eat mainly vegetation in spring but like salmon
in summer and autumn and would hibernate in winter. The
vegetation they eat is grass, sedge, bulbs and roots. In some
places they also hunt moose, caribou and elk.
The cubs are born from January to March and remain with their
mums for two and a half years. They can have one to four cubs,
but twins are the most common
