The grizzly bear is Canadas second largest carnivore. It is easily one of the most iconic animals on Canadian soil. On one hand, the grizzly is oft linked to danger, and its name sounds awfully close to the adjective grisly. On the other, this bear remains a highly respected symbol of the nations nature and culture. It is synonymous with strength, confidence, leadership, rest and quietude. Bears are known to be particularly intelligent and resourceful beasts. They work hard for their food and the well-being of their cubs, but they also rest hard. Symbolic of signature Canadian winters, the grizzly can hibernate for up to seven months in our snowy landscape.
