A Brown Bear
As the autumn draws to a close and the majority of North Americas natural food supply has diminished, the brown bears of Canada and Alaska start to collect the last nutrients they need before going into hibernation for the winter.

Through the summer months the brown bears replenish their winter weight loss by being able to eat up to 40 kg (90lbs) of wild salmon per day. The Katmai National Park Reserve in Alaska, is one of the most popular places for the brown bear during the summer with around 1,500 brown bears thought to be living in the 4,000,000 acre national park.

Brown Bear with Salmon
The brown bear either builds its den from scratch, or adapts a natural cave so it can have an undisturbed sleep through the harsh winter months. Brown bears are thought to hibernate for between 4 and 8 months every year.
