How I met Rick Furmanek he was visiting my booth at the Tubac Art Festival.
He mentioned he was a published photographer and showed me his photos. I was stunned at these two fighting Bears. As a result the first framed print is hanging on his wall. I love nature photographers who capture a moment that leaves us in awe.
Grizzly bears” are also brown bears, but as their habitat is on mountain slopes, tundra plains and inland forests they are typically smaller in size than coastal bears. You will hear the term grizzly describing inland bears as their food source is quite varied and less plentiful than along the coast. Grizzlies live in the Interior and Arctic regions of Alaska, such as Denali National Park
and Gates of the Arctic National Park
. “Grizzlies” (as they are fondly referred to locally) tend to eat roots, grubs, and small rodents. Because of the difficulty in finding an abundance of food, grizzly bears tend to be smaller and more aggressive than brown bears. The term “grizzly” comes from their fur’s color, with gray typically on their shoulders and hump. “Grizzly” is not in reference to “grisly” or horrific! The male boars tend to roam individually, although a female sow may have cubs accompanying her for up to two years at a time.
