Despite common belief, grizzly bears aren’t one single species. Instead, they are any North American subspecies of brown bear, including the mainland and peninsular grizzly, as well as the Kodiak bear. In fact, scientists often refer grizzlies as North American brown bears. Scientific Name: Ursus arctos Characteristics: Known for their heightened aggression relative to other bear species, our figurine allows you to safely study all of the physical features of a grizzly bear in the palm of your hand. Immaculately crafted and hand painted with true-to-life detail, this model earns its place in even the pickiest nature buff’s collection! Size and Color: 4.7 inches long and 1.95 inches tall, our grizzly bear statuette is a bit smaller than a soda can on its side. Like all bears classified as brown bears, this figurine’s coat is a mix of dark and light brown fur, with tan sections closer to the head. The Grizzly Bear is part of the Wild Safari® North American Wildlife collection All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free

History

Although grizzly bears are often regarded as being hostile and ferocious, they tend to avoid contact with humans. When a grizzly bear attacks, it’s often because it was surprised or is defending either a source of food or its cubs. While they are generally more non-confrontational than they’re given credit for, grizzly bears will defend their cubs fiercely. Despite the grizzly bear’s immense size and natural strength, all subspecies are considered threatened in the United States and endangered in parts of Canada.
