Caption: Brown bear (Ursus arctos) with a fish. While brown bears are mainly vegetarian, they will also eat meat when available, both by hunting and by scavenging for carrion. They fish in streams and bays for salmon when these fish return from the sea and swim upstream to spawn. Brown bears can be over 2 metres tall and can weigh over 300 kilograms. Brown bears are mainly solitary animals, foraging in mountains and river valleys in Eurasia and north-western North America, though they will congregate around streams at fish spawning times.
