Bear Grizzly Lovers Gifts
The Grizzly Bear is any North American subspecies of the brown bear, including the mainland grizzly, the Kodiak bear, the peninsular grizzly, and the recently extinct California grizzly and the Mexican grizzly bear. Specialists sometimes call the grizzly the North American Brown Bear because the grizzly and the brown bear are one species on two continents.
Since the mainland grizzly is so widespread, it is representative and archetypal for the whole subspecific group. Even so, classification is being revised along genetic lines. Except for females (sows) with cubs, girzzlies are normally solitary, active animals, but iin coastal areas grizzlies gather around streams, lakes, rivers, and ponds during the salmon spawn. Every other year, females producte one to four young (usually two) which are small and weigh only about 1 lb. A sow is protective of her offspring and will attack if she thinks she or her cubs are threatened.
