DID YOU KNOW?
Brown Bear cubs will stay with their mother from two to four years. During this time, they will learn survival techniques crucial to their existence. Brown Bear cubs also learn through play. They practice chasing and stalking each other. They chew, swat, and jaw wrestle. These activities build muscles. They will learn which foods return the highest nutritional values, where to attain them, how to hunt, how to fish, how to defend themselves and where to den. The cubs learn by following and imitating their mother’s actions during the period they are with her.
