Grizzly Bear Bathing

white grizzly bear in Alaska's Katmai National Park outside Homer AKThe grizzly bear we named Cheetah took a bath at least once a day.  Here we caught her blowing bubbles and washing in a small creek in the sedge grass meadows.  While most bears enjoy getting in the water to cool down on a hot sunny day, Cheetah took this to a whole new level.  She really loved the water, and would scrub down her body and blow bubbles under the water’s surface.  It is a great example of how all bears are individuals with unique personality traits and habits.
