Bears at Play [Explored]

I took this photograph at the Alaska Zoo. These two Brown Bears were both raised from cubs at the Zoo, orphaned very young.

 

The female is an 1100-pound Kodiak Brown Bear (right) and the male is a Grizzly Bear (left), around 800 pounds, from mainland Alaska.

 

When they play fight, it's quite a show! Lots of noise and spittle flying around... but it's instantly recognizable that they are not serious... just having fun!
