Brown Bear (Grizzly, Kodiak, Russian Brown)
‘Brown bear’ – Broad, powerful muscles move beneath this massive bear’s brown fur, promising both speed and lethal force.
A large, powerful omnivore, the grizzly bear inhabits many of the world’s forested hills. Equally happy consuming nuts, berries, fish, or small mammals, the grizzly is nonetheless fiercely territorial, and will chase off—or, failing that, kill and eat—any intruders it views as competition.
When faced with a foe or small group of threats, the grizzly attempts to subdue or kill with its claws. When it can, the bear tries to grab a single target to deal continual damage until that target is dead, unconscious, or escapes.
