There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Amazing facts about the Grizzly, some recently learned:

#1 - Bears possess the largest and most convoluted brains relative to their size of any land mammal. In the animal kingdom, their intelligence compares with that of higher primates.

#2 - Bears are thought to have the best sense of smell of any animal on earth. For example, the average dog's sense of smell is 100 times better than a humans. A blood hound's sense of smell is 300 times better. A bear's sense of smell is 7 times better than a blood hounds or 2,100 times better than a humans.

#3 - Quote: It seems that carpal bone have a high resistance to mechanical deformation. Grizzly bear front paws are surprisingly heavy due to massive carpal bones?
In my own words: The grizzly's ability to deliver a powerful paw strike is undeniable.

In conclusion, no significant evidence provided any leads towards increased muscle strength deterioration or muscle mass deterioration in post­prime brown bears, yet evidence had been found of increased muscle volume deterioration in post­prime brown bears as. The brown bears who were experimented on were shortly released back into their respective locations within Yellowstone National Park after the study commenced. These findings suggest that brown bears, if not all bear species as a whole, are able to retain their muscle mass and maximum muscle strength well past their prime years, unlike most other animals.
The muscle mass of the three year old bear was relatively low due to its low total weight, and the muscle mass of the oldest specimen concurred with the relatively high amounts of Ib fibres: the densest muscle fibres discovered in mammalian and reptilian bodies so far.
