The grizzly bear, also known as the silvertip bear, the grizzly, is a subspecies of brown bear that generally lives in the uplands of western North America. Except for cubs and females, grizzlies are normally solitary, active animals. In coastal areas, the grizzly congregates alongside streams, lakes and rivers during the salmon spawn. Every other year, females (sows) produce one to four offspring. A sow is protective of her offspring and will attack if she thinks she or her cubs are threatened.
The polar bear is a bear native largely within the Arctic Circle encompassing the Arctic Ocean, its surrounding seas and land. It is arguably the world's largest bear. Although closely related to the brown bear, polar bear has evolved to occupy a narrower ecological space, with many body characteristics adapted for cold temperatures, for moving across snow, ice, and open water, and for hunting the seals, which make up most of its diet.
