Named for the grey tipped hairs they gain with age, grizzly bears are some of the largest predators in North America. Found in Northwestern states and Canada, grizzly bears are known for their mostly brown fur and large reputation - despite being smaller than most other brown bear species. Grizzlies can stand up to 9 feet tall and weigh up to 800lbs. Grizzly bears are omnivorous, and eat anything from fish and berries to bison and deer. Grizzlies are solitary animals but are not territorial. Grizzlies communicate through sound, smell, and movement, and have a jaw pressure powerful enough to crush a human head.
