Has anybody got close enough to find out - and live to tell the world?
There are many differences in a horse and a grizzly.
To name a few:
A horse is a prey animal, while a bear is a predator.
A horse can only stand on its hind legs for a short period of time, a grizzly can stand much longer.
A horse is more commonly tamed than a grizzly, not saying that some grizzlys arent.
The average horse weighs more than the average grizzly.
No. They are two separate species; they are only related by the Order Mammalia.
They walk, run or swim.
Yes, in the Rocky Mountains.
Normally 1-2 cubs.
The black bear is endothermic
It\'s possible, actually. Bison will attack a grizzly bear if that bear is going in to attack one of the calves of that herd, and those horns on a bison, short though they seem, can deliver a lot of damage to a grizzly, probably enough to kill it.
A grizzly often has a territory that extends around 100 miles wide. Male bears tend to have larger territories than females do since they have to look for mates during the breeding season, unlike the females.
because some people shoot bears when they think the bears are gonna kill them but they are just trying to protect some cubs or just trying to protect themselves
Grizzly bears uses all its senses: smell, sight, hearing, & their claws. They also use their mouth to catch fish. Their sharp teeth help too.
Yes. just like dogs and cats and humans they do do it 19-21 times
during winter, the grizzly bear grows a thick layer fur coat and the air in it traps heat from the surroundings. it also hibernates which is similar to sleeping and its life processes slow down, thus using less energy, for example, its breathing becomes slower. before hibernation, it also eats a lot so it stores fat as a source of energy for the long winter hibernation.
I'm pretty sure they can eat 20,000 berries in a day.
Sure, just be sure you have the nerve. A charging Griz will only give you a look at one vital area for a shotgun with birdshot and thats it's head. The nasal cavity is a large soft tissue area that leads right to the brain and will drop or turn a Griz on the spot. Now like I said it's all about nerve. From more than 5 feet the shot will spread out too much to have the power to kill, and it will definitely turn the bear at no more than 10 feet. On a bluff charge the ears will remain upright. If there down....it's coming to get you. Bears can usually be turned from a longer distance on a bluff charge.
I like this approach over any large caliber rifle or handgun as you need to be pin point accurate with either of those and hit the CNS. Very few Griz have been stopped in their tracks unless you hit the CNS. Birdshot gives you more room for error. Use this method only as a second choice, as bear spray would still be my first option.
It lives in the caves like some other bears.
Bears mark their territory so other bears know to keep away. It is very important so the bears can survive and have enough food for the winter hibernation. It is also important so that other bears can tell if it's male or female, strong or weak so they can tell to stay away or invade.
If Grizzly bears can run faster than 40mph, then they're faster than race horse.
There is a wide variety of bears on the market today. In the last several years bears have become increasingly affordable to the average consumer. You first need to ask yourself what kind of bear you are looking to buy. You can choose from the black bear, the brown bear, the kodiak bear, the sun bear or the ever popular polar bear. If you are considering buying a more endangered species like the polar or the kodiak bear then you are going to need to look more into the black market, and that could cost you. For example, when i bought my kodiak bear back in 02 i had to deal with some sketchy characters that ended up (for lack of a better term) screwed me. I ended up paying 57,000 USD. This ended up being a big mistake because i could have gotten a female (the more preferable of the genders) for only 51,500 USD. More recently, I have just made a fantastic purchase of a female brown bear for 25,000 USD that i play with on a nearly daily basis. When buying a bear you have to know that it is NOT just the original cost of the bear, but the other things you need to buy. Like food for example, you need to have at least fifty pounds of beets on hand at all times because bear do in fact eat beets. All of these costs add up and you need to have the funds to support it.
But in the end, if you have to ask how much a bear costs, you cant afford it.
Grizzlies and Black Bears use their claws as an adaptation to hunt, climb and dig.
grizzlies also have a very good smell to get to their prey as well as having a hump of muscle on their back for running and digging and a keen sense of smell for tracking prey.
Grizzly Bears in particular have specially adapted claws that are longer & have less arch than a black Bear's claws, they are adapted for digging, tearing apart fallen trees & overturning rocks; along with theses unique digging claws the grizzly has a muscular hump that provides tremendous strength & power to its front limbs.
Black Bears have shorter claws that are more hooked, they are specially adapted for climbing.

Bears have short tails, barely visible..
