Transcript of Grizzly Bear

GRIZZLY BEAR! (This is a basketball team) The Intro While their latin name implies dreadful, real grizzly bear facts prove otherwise.In actuality, the grizzly bear is one of nature's most magnificent predators and once roamed much of North America.Grizzlies are technically brown bears. The only distinction between the two is habitat: bears roaming coastal areas along Alaska and Canada are referred to as brown bears, while inland bears are called grizzly bears.Still, the physical features between coastal bears and inland bears are the same. It is the differences between a brown/grizzly and a black bear that are important. These differences are:Grizzlies have a noticable hump on their shouldersGrizzlies have concave facesGrizzly/brown bear coloration ranges from light cream to black, but generally is a light brown Weight: Adult males around Yellowstone and Glacier National Park tend to weigh approximately 300-500 pounds, while femailes weigh around 200. Alaskan male grizzly bears can weigh upwards of 850 pounds and females nearly 500.Height: Grizzly bear facts suggest that most do not grow larger than 3.5 feet from paw to shoulderLength: Grizzlies can grow up to seven feet long!Sprinting speed: Records have proven that grizzlies can run as fast as 35 miles per hourLifespan: 20-25 years STATS! FIGHT!!! HABITAT While the grizzly bear use to roam from Alaska to Mexico, and California to the Great Plains, human encroachment has seriously dwindled its population and habitat. Now, grizzly bears are mainly found in National Parks, like Glacier National Park, Montana, and Yellowstone.Still, these are hardy creatures. They have survived years of hunting by humans and have emerged victoriously from their near-extinction status decades ago. DIET And Yes Grizzly Bears have diets too. Grizzly bears are omnivores, meaning they eat both meat and fruits and veggies. Basically, anything a grizzly bear can get its paws on, it will consume (generally not humans though!) Much of their diet consists of:Green vegetationNutsBerriesInsectsRootsSalmonElkMooseDeer IT WILL GET YOU TOO!!! THE OUTRO More grizzly bear facts that you may find interesting includes:There have been only 10 bear related fatalities in Glacier National Park since 1910In April 2007, grizzly bears were removed from the Threatened Species List due to a massive recovery in Yellowstone National ParkThe typical litter size for grizzlies is 1-3 cubsOnly a little more than 1,000 grizzly bears live in the lower 48 states, while over 30,000 reside in Alaska REFERENCE! http://www.glacier-national-park-travel-guide.com/grizzly-bear-facts.html THE END!!!
