They are mostly solitary animals but during the summer, when the salmon spawn, they can be seen gathering to feast on the fish. Their diet consists largely of nuts and berries, but they also eat other animals of all sizes, from rodents (mice) to moose. They get the name grizzly largely due to the texture of their fur. They dig dens for themselves and hibernate during the winter. The winter is also when they give birth, they usually give birth to twins. They are quite fast, garnering speeds of up to 30 miles. If they are surprised, feel endangered, or if a human comes between a mother and her cubs, grizzlies can be dangerous to humans. Before North America was settled by Europeans, grizzlies were much more widespread over the continent, now they roam mostly in the Canadian wilds and Alaska.
