Grizzly bear’s amazing salmon catching techniques – BBC

By | January 29, 2020


Salmon, returning to spawn, in their thousands. These bears are first in line for a nutritious catch. Triggered by hormonal changes, the
grizzly bears now enter a phase of hyperphagia. This allows them to eat constantly for up
to 20 hours a day, without ever feeling full. They can consume up to 100,000 calories in a single day. And given the abundance of salmon, they can afford to be picky. Just like the bears in the tropics, they seek out the highest form of energy. Selecting only the fat rich
eggs, the skin and brain of the fish. In open water, it’s not always easy. But as the salmon move further upstream, the grizzlies are here too. Where the river narrows it will be easier
to land a catch.

    It's awesome to watch, but , Salmon are very expensive to buy in the market. They are not even freshly caught.
