Grizzly Anatomy


Class Mammalia, Order Carnivora, Family Ursidae (bears), Genus Ursus, species Arctos (grizzly bear and brown bear.)

Grizzly Bears are up to 7 feet (2.1 m) long and weigh up to 1,500 pounds (680 kg). Females are about 2/3 the size of males. Like all bears, they are plantigrade (flat-footed). The front claws are up to 4.75 inches (12 cm), almost twice as long as the rear claws. Newborns weigh only about 1 pound (0.45 kg), the size of a rat.

    You know, Dick Cheney shoots birds and it wasn't until his second term he shot his friend. Bears are shot too, right. You know, I just don't understand it.

  3. Lot's of bear bile over here. I have never tried it.

    I have never seen Bear Claw Stew. I have seen tiger paw, but never tried that either.

  8. One time, I ate four pounds of cat shit laced with peyote and hiked to Alaska where I mind-melded with a grizzly bear. Here is what it told me:

    -"I want to swat your face off"
    -"Mmmmm...I like to scratch, like this..."
    -"I really want to crunch your bones in my mouth and slurp your blood"
    -"I like salmon a real lot"
    -"I like berries, but they aren't very filling"
    -"naptime is happy time"
    -"It really is driving me crazy that you are not being eaten by me right now"
    -"what really cracks me up is when there are animal teeth in my turds"
    -"watch how I scratch my back on a tree. Ha ha!"
    -"I can pretty much do whatever I want"

    Thanks, bear! I loved our time together!

    Now when you pick a pawpaw
    Or a prickly pear
    And you prick a raw paw
    Next time beware
    Don't pick the prickly pear by the paw
    When you pick a pear
    Try to use the claw
    But you don't need to use the claw
    When you pick a pear of the big pawpaw
    Have I given you a clue ?
