Far From Home: Kodiak Bear Cubs Found Wandering Florida

We’re pretty proud of our bears here in the Great Land. We’re the only state that boasts three species of bear, those being the black bear (Ursus americanus), the grizzly/brown bear (Ursus arctos), and the polar bear (Ursus maritimus). In fact, Kodiak Island, to the south of mainland Alaska, brags some of the biggest bears in the world, those being a subspecies of the grizzly/brown, known as the Kodiak bear, Ursus arctos middendorffi. These bad boys can be up to ten feet tall when standing upright, and the biggest ones known weighed upward of a ton.
