COSEWIC assessment and status report on the Grizzly Bear Ursus arctos in Canada
Grizzly bears share the typical ursid body form, and are large, muscular, and robust. In contrast to American black bears, grizzlies have a prominent shoulder hump, concave facial profile, and long front claws. Fur colour ranges from blonde through shades of brown to nearly black. Males are, on average, 1.8 times as heavy as females. Typical body mass for adult females ranges from 100 kg for interior populations to 200 kg for coastal bears.
