 Brown or Grizzly Bear

Browns and Grizzly Bears are members of the same species. In Alaska its the geographic range that determines the common name of individuals. Bears living along the coast are called Browns and those living further inland are Grizzlies. The generally accepted limit is fifty miles. Any individual whose range is more than fifty miles from the coast is considered a Grizzly Bear. Both are omnivores who eat plants, roots, berries, fish, small mammals and insects. The name Grizzly comes from the silver tips of fur that often develop on the coats of mature animals, giving them a grizzled appearance.
