Description
The grizzly bear is also known as the brown bear. Their fur ranges from a cream or silver color to an almost black color. Some grizzly bears' fur is tipped in a lighter color than the rest of the fur. This gives the fur a grizzled look and is how the bear got its name. They have a slight hump above their shoulder. Head and shoulders are typically paler than the darker sides, belly, and legs. Their front claws are extremely long, the ears are round and indistinct and their tails are short.
