Grizzly Bear Sub-adult

brown bear sub adult clamming in Katmai National Park Alaska

We named this subadult grizzly bear “Bobby” since he reminded me so much of an adult bear we call Bob.  They both had the same funny, round, blond mickey mouse ears on the tops of their heads.  Bobby is most likely four years old, and on his own for the first summer.  Mother bears will drive away their cubs during their third or fourth year.   He was a small little guy who liked to dig for clams along the river.
