Description
A juvenile coastal brown bear (grizzly bear) searches for razor clams in the mud flats near Silver Salmon Creek in Lake Clark National Park, Alaska, at low tide. In early summer, sedge grasses, roots and clams are the bears' major source of nourishment. A bit later on in the summer they'll be able to chow down on berries. As fall approaches, the salmon will start their run up Silver Salmon Creek, providing the bears with a crucial source of protein, fat, and nourishment for their winter hibernation.
