Meet the grizzly bear: Don't let their cute and cuddly appearance fool you. Grizzly bears are large, powerful and sometimes deadly. Yet despite their size and fearsome claws and teeth, their shaggy appearance and appealing features make the grizzly a firm favorite with many people around the world. Grizzly bears are members of the brown bear family. The term "grizzly" refers to the appearance of the hair on the back of mature bears, which is light brown with white tips, giving it a "grizzled," or gray, appearance. Grizzly bears are typically larger than black bears, weighing between 300 to 850 pounds.
