    It's always amazed me how they'll tolerate each other so close only at that time of year in the abundance of salmon...

    I confess I don't know enough about their social behaviour to reply except to ask - normally are they are a bit territorial in addition to protective of their cubs?

    BTW...he's out there again catching salmon.....I love this cam!

    That is not a prime spot with only one bear. Their lower camera is out. In the other, it's not unusual to see a couple dozen at once. Look here around 3:45 to see what I mean: Katmai

    The big boars avoid each other and a chance encounter always means a fight. Likewise, the sows with cubs keep their distance from the boars because the boars will kill cubs on sight to bring the sow back into estrus. In fact, the big males are the leading cause of mortality of cubs. Only during salmon season do they seem to call a truce. Even then, the sows will fish downstream from the males and fish warily at that. The biggest, meanest boar gets the prime fishing spot and so on down the pecking order...

    I'd add that the sows will fight to protect their cubs, when cornered. Occasionally, they'll win, but not often...

    What comes up on the link for me is a lone blackie. The browns will kill a black on sight, even in fishing season, so it's smart to separate...

    Cute - and they're probably siblings. There may be more with a combination of coats. Those are called "cross foxes"...

    Here's a link to pix of cross foxes. Interesting that these three seem to be littermates and they're all single phase instead of being crosses...
