Bears have such wonderful solid shapes: America's version of an elephant? At least, with regard to a solid volume of space? Well, I think so. And Grizzly Bears especially. Even though they are not in central or eastern Canada, I still think of them as my favourite bear. Many prefer the Black bear, I think because of the familiarity of them all across Canada. And many favourite the Polar Bear; well, they're so incredibly huge, aren't they? But it's the grizzly that has a special place in my heart.
