Clam Digging

Clam digging during low tide in the Khutzeymateen is another way for Grizzly Bears to get their nutrition during the spring, in addition to eating the sedges and grasses.

 

This guy seemed to need to dig quite deep in order to get the clams out of the sand, or maybe he was not very good at it yet.  But either way it was fun to watch him dig his holes and enjoy the occasional clam, but the effort did not seem to equal the reward.
