Grizzly Bear with Red Fox

grizzly bear with red foxA grizzly bear digs for clams side by side with a clamming red fox.  Foxes will dig for their own clams, in addition to eating smaller bits of clam meat left behind by the bears.  Foxes may nibble on the meat left stuck to the clam shells by the bears.  Cubs also eat this meat when following their mothers around the mud flats.

You can also just barely make out a group of bear viewers standing behind the grizzly bear.
