Brown Bear

N a m e : Ursus arctos horribilis – Grizzly bear
Distribution :
Western Canada, Alaska, and the northwestern United States, historically existed in Great Plains
Description :
Grizzlies are identified by a medium to dark brown coat with gray, or "grizzled" tips on the fur. Smaller than the coastal bear, a grizzly typically weighs up to 800 lb (364 kg) in inland areas, with bears in the Yukon region weighing as little as 350 lb (159 kg). Coastal bears may be nearly twice a mountain grizzly's weight. Highly adaptable: can live in montane pine forests, temperate rainforest, arid scrubland, and prairie.
