Grizzly Shore

Standing on the rocky shore after a swim through an inlet, this beautifully coloured Grizzly Bear stopped to look at us, and give us some nice poses.  It actually seemed like a pretty friendly Grizzly Bear, and kind of followed us around while we traversed in the zodiac.  Not in a threatening way, more in a “will you be my friend” way.

 

The Grizzlies in the Great Bear Rainforest spend the fall trying to eat salmon that come through the various channels, but in years when there is short supply, you will also see them digging in the ground and eating the roots.  It’s hard to believe that roots could sustain such a large animal for a long winter hibernation, but I saw one Grizzly do it one fall, and then saw her again the next fall, so it clearly provides them the nutrients that they need.
