Brown Bear


Living in North America, the brown bear is recognized by two subspecies: the coastal brown bear and the inland grizzly bear.

These two types broadly define the range of sizes of all brown bear subspecies. An adult grizzly living inland in Yukon may weigh as little as 80 kg, while an adult coastal brown bear in nearby coastal Alaska living on a steady, nutritious diet of spawning salmon may weigh as much as 680 kg
