Native Habitats and Countries
Brown Bear and Grizzly Bear are considered the same species, but are defined on their environments. “Brown bear” commonly refers to animals found in coastal areas of Alaska and Canadian Yukon. Brown bears found in inland and in northern habitats of Alaska are often referred to as “Grizzlies.
Brown bears eat a variety of foods including everything from moose and caribou, ground squirrels, fish to berries, grasses, sedges, horsetails, cow parsnips and roots of many kinds of plants.
Except for breeding pairs and females with offspring, bears are typically solitary creatures and avoid the company of other bears. Groups will come together where food sources are concentrated such as at streams where bears catch salmon swimming upstream during the spawn.
