Grizzly Bear Bathing
The 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.
