Going Crazy for Food!

Tis the season for hyperphagia, which means crazy for food. This is the time of the year when bears become crazy for food. Finding as many calories as possible and eating for as many as 23 hours a day.

This grizzly mom joined us for lunch and what’s on her menu? When the tide is dropping tiny fish called beny eels and marine isopods are trapped under the rocks. She will also eat blue mussels and barnacles off the rocks.

Can you see one of her cubs foraging in the rocks? Post yes in the comments below if you can find the cub…
