Brown bears are large mammals that live in cool mountain forests, meadows, and river valleys. These solitary bears are found in North America, Europe, and Asia. Grizzly bears are a type of large brown bear found in the interior of North America.

Although they sleep in dens (caves, hollow logs, or holes they dig) during the winter, they are not true hibernators and can be easily awakened.

Anatomy: Brown bears are up to 7 feet (2.1 m) long and weigh up to 1,500 pounds (680 kg). Their thick fur ranges in color from black to brown to reddish brown to blond. Newborns weigh only about 1 pound (0.45 kg), the size of a rat.

Diet: Brown bears are omnivores who eat plants, roots, berries, fungi, fish, small mammals, and large insects.
