Caption

Brown bear (Ursus arctos) mother and cubs in a coastal area of Alaska, USA. Brown bears have an average of two cubs in a litter. The cubs usually stay with their mother for 2-3 years. Brown bears in North America are also called grizzly bears. In Alaska, they can be 2-3 metres tall and can weigh over 700 kilograms. Brown bears are mainly vegetarian and feed on a wide variety of plants, but they will also eat meat when available, both by hunting and by scavenging. They are mainly solitary animals, foraging in mountains and river valleys in Eurasia and north-western North America. Photographed in August, in Katmai National Park and Preserve, Alaska, USA.
