Grizzly Bear bathing

brown bear bathing in AlaskaThe grizzly bear we named Cheetah washes her hair in a creek.  Cheetah would take a bath every day, and scrub her whole body using her paws and nails.  I couldn’t help but laugh seeing her scrub her head, just like a human in a bath tub shampooing their hair.  When dry and clean, her hair was a brilliant white color.  The blond color variation is very common with female bears in this part of the Alaskan coast.
