Sometimes telling the sex of a grizzly bear is easy – like with this guy pictured above. He had the droopiest balls of any bear I’ve ever seen! However, on many bears you cannot see any visible genitalia, so watching how a bear urinates is the easiest way. Males urinate from the bottom of their bodies, as you can see in this bear photo. On females, it looks more like their urine is coming out of the back of their bodies towards their butt, from underneath their small tail (where the vagina is located).
