Grizzly Bear (Ursus arctos horribilis)
Yellowstone National Park
It's almost that time of year again. This time next week I'll be driving across the country to Yellowstone National Park. This will be my twelfth consecutive trip to Yellowstone and most likely my last for at least a year due to Covid-19. I paid for half this trip before Covid-19 hit the US and set aside a good portion of money already which is why I'm still going.
Like most people, Covid-19 has changed lives forever especially in the workplace. I work for Delta Airlines and we are only working 30 hour weeks, four days on, 3 off but unlike other Airlines Delta has no plans of laying off or furloughs of their below wing, above wing and flight attendants. I am blessed with my job, 4 weeks vacation, a 5th week four more years from now and this is how I'm able to take this kind of time away to do what I enjoy!!!
The bears settle in their dens to hibernate for the winter. This deep sleep allows the grizzlies to conserve energy. Their heart rate slows down from 40 beats per minute to 8, and they do not go to the bathroom at all during these months of slumber.
Grizzly bear has brown fur, but hairs on the shoulders and back have white tops which give them "grizzled" look. That is why they are known as grizzly bears.You can recognize grizzly bears by the hump on their back. Hump is made of muscles.Grizzly bears use growls, roars and snorts to communicate with each other.
