This young female grizzly bear appeared to be catching snowflakes on her tongue, during a spring snow storm. Grizzly bears received their name because their fur can be tipped with white. This gives them a “grizzled” look.
This is Bella, a wild-born Alaska brown bear (grizzly) who now resides in Montana. Apparently, she lost her monther when she was a small cub and was too vulnerable and young to survive by herself. Visit Bella, Jake, Brutus and Maggie at the Montana Grizzly Encounter, 80 Bozeman Hill Rd.Bozeman, Montana 59715.
