|Grizzly Bear||Nexon Game|
The Grizzly Bear is a type of Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.
Grizzly Bear has light gray hair that parts to reveal white in the middle. She has orange irides with highlights, indicating her current species of animal is still alive. She has a furred black scarf, and a beige sweater vest with a white undershirt and black tie. She has another shirt under both of these, with beige sleeves that become black and furred at the wrists. She also has a black skirt, beige stockings that fade to black with furred ends, and black flats. Like all bear friends, she has a mace-like weapon with the paw of the bear's respective species as the 'mace'. The handle for hers in particular is white with a grayish-green cap at the opposite end of the paw. And, finally, similar to all Friends, she has traits of the animal species she once belonged to on her body. In her case, those are the ears and tail of a grizzly bear.
In Real Life
The grizzly bear is a North American subspecies of the brown bear. Grizzlies are typically brown, though their fur can appear to be white-tipped, or grizzled, lending them their name. Grizzly bears are protected by law in the continental United States—not in Alaska—though there have been some controversial attempts to remove those protections in recent years.
These awe-inspiring giants tend to be solitary animals—with the exception of females and their cubs—but at times they do congregate. Dramatic gatherings of grizzly bears can be seen at prime Alaskan fishing spots when the salmon run upstream for summer spawning. In this season, dozens of bears may gather to feast on the fish, craving fats that will sustain them through the long winter ahead.
Brown bears dig dens for winter hibernation, often holing up in a suitable-looking hillside. Females give birth during this winter rest, often to twins. Grizzly bears are powerful, top-of-the-food-chain predators, yet much of their diet consists of nuts, berries, fruit, leaves, and roots. Bears also eat other animals, from rodents to moose. Despite their impressive size, grizzlies have been clocked running at 30 miles an hour. They can be dangerous to humans, particularly if surprised or if humans come between a mother and her cubs.
Grizzlies once lived in much of western North America and even roamed the Great Plains. These animals need a lot of space—their home range can encompass up to 600 square miles—so their ideal habitat is one that is isolated from development and has plenty of food and places to dig their dens.
Though European settlement gradually eliminated the bears from much of their original habitat, grizzly populations can still be found in parts of Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, and Washington State. They’re one of the most iconic residents of Yellowstone National Park. Many grizzlies also still roam the wilds of Canada and Alaska, where hunters pursue them as big game trophies.
