This family of coastal brown bears has recently emerged from hibernation. In the spring, bears graze for hours. "This sedge grass is the first thing they eat. It's really nutritious and some studies suggest that the grass helps to gently get their digestive system going again after being in hibernation," Eszterhas says. As members of the second largest bear species in the world, the two cubs pictured here could eventually stand 10 feet tall and weigh 1,000 pounds.
