How Much Do Grizzly Bears Weigh?

Grizzly bears refer to a variety of brown bears. For instance, there are darker bears in coastal regions that many refer to simply as brown bears. In North America, there are smaller bears with lighter fur colors that many refer to as grizzly bears. However, according to the National Wildlife Federation, most of these brown bears all fall under the same subspecies.

There are brown bears in Asia, Europe, Scandinavia, and Russia. There is a brown bear that is found only in the Kodiak archipelago which is known as the Kodiak bear. Some grizzly bears can weigh as much as 700 pounds. Typically, the males are larger than the females, but the females can grow to weigh up to 600 pounds!

Are Grizzly Bears Accustomed to Humans?

With the presence of humans being an undeniable aspect of a grizzly bear’s life, they do get accustomed to humans. Just as bears have learned to share food sources with other bears, they also coexist with humans so long as humans are not hurting them.

In Canada, bears have adapted their behavior to the presence of humans by choosing to be most active at night when humans are resting. In large national parks, grizzly bears are found alongside humans, but their behavior is still highly unpredictable. Grizzlies have on more than one occasion attacked humans.

Grizzly Bear Climbs a Plane

When the video below starts, you’re looking at a small passenger plane. There is a forest in the backdrop and a large grizzly bear is already curiously trying to climb the plane’s right back wing. As the bear moves forward on the wing, it pulls the back portion of the plane down until it touches the ground. The grizzly then climbs up onto the wing of the plane and starts inspecting the top part of the plane.

It sniffs around before it decides to climb onto the top of the plane. Because of its weight, the lower part of the plane is down, and the nose of the plane along with the landing gear has lifted. The people filming giggle at the sight, especially as the bear makes it just above the cockpit. Its head pops up and it looks ahead, maybe wondering how to get the thing started!
