Grizzly Bear

Ursus arctos horribilis


Grizzly bears are large aggressive bears. Color varies from black to blond.


Grizzlies typically live in forested mountain environments, although at one time they were relatively common on the prairies, and can be found on Arctic and subarctic tundra.


This bear was staring at a bison bull that was wandering into the meadow. The bull was huffing and acting aggressive and the bear decided that valor didn't include getting speared by a couple of bison horns and he quickly gave ground and wandered out of sight.

Thanks for the back up story! Huffing and acting aggressive seems like a good strategy... guess you have to have big horns though.
