The Grizzly Bear is a large type of brown bear, found in the extreme northwestern regions of the North American continent, especially Canada and Alaska. Though not as large as the Polar Bear, these bears can still grow quite large (up to 1000 lbs. and 6 ½ feet in length). Their sharp claws can be up to 4" long!
History: Explorers Lewis and Clark first described this creature as 'grisley', though what exactly they meant is not 100% clear. It likely referred to the bear's 'grizzled' appearance, with lighter colored tips on its fur.
