Alberta Grizzly Bear (Ursus arctos)

Instagram-Albertawow
  • Adult male (or boar) body weight average is 180 kilograms (400 pounds), but in better habitats, body weight can be 325 kilograms (716.5 pounds) or more. Adult female (or sow) body weight average is about two-thirds that of the male. Adult forefoot print width is about 14 centimetres (5.5 inches). Adult rear foot print length is about 25 centimetres (9.75 inches). Colour varies from tawny brown to black. Fur is often "grizzled" in appearance (silver-tipped) but this is not true of all grizzlies, nor does this occur at all times of the year.
  • In Alberta, grizzly bears are active from spring until late autumn. As a rule, grizzlies enter dens during a major snowfall (late October for females, late November for males). Like northern black bears, grizzlies "hibernate" for the winter, although the period spent in the winter den averages slightly less and they do occasionally wake up and roam near the den during the winter.
