my frame-a kodiak brown bear through the rangefinder @ the academy of natural sciences of drexel university, philadelphia, USA by David Chancellor @chancellordavid The Kodiak brown bear is the largest of the Alaskan brown bears. Its varied diet follows the season, for example, it grazes on plants in the summer and eats salmon and berries during the late summer to fall.
Brown bears are a subgroup of the grizzly bear, but they are now only found in Alaska and isolated regions of northern Canada. They are rarely found in the lower 48 US states, but were once found as far south as Mexico and as far west as the Sierra Mountains.
Brown bears are often said to be unpredictable, but attacks on humans are rare. The few reported attacks that there are, however, are made by injured bears or females protecting or separated from their cubs. Brown bears are generally solitary creatures with no natural predators.
