The grizzly bear (Ursus arctos horribilis) is a sub-species of brown bear, most commonly found in western North America. Their ancestors came from Eurasia only around 50,000 years ago, which is not enough time to develop any major differences from their European and Asian cousins. Grizzlies vary in size depending on the location of their habitat, and therefore diet .
A grizzly that lives in Alaska or Canada will be larger that a grizzly living in the Rocky Mountains or the Yellowstone National Park because of the amount of fish – the bear’s primary source of protein. In other regions, vegetation, carrion and rodents are a much bigger part of their diet. In Yellowstone’s case, the park has seen the introduction of the grizzly’s long time hunting rival – the gray wolf. Coyotes, foxes and wolverines may compete with the bear for smaller prey, but they are more pests than rivals.
The more herbivorous black bears are not a threat to the grizzly. In fact, they can sometimes be the prey. When grizzlies venture into black bear territory in search of food, the latter usually run away, only defending themselves if the grizzly is young or there is no other option.
**EXPORTING TERMS AND CONDITIONS: It is the buyer's responsibility to ensure legality in their own country. Some nations may require CITES import permits to be applied for after our export is approved. We guarantee a legal export from Canada but we are not responsible for items detained by foreign customs or any additional fees that may apply outside of Canada. We suggest contacting your federal wildlife enforcement agency for your local regulations.
Once a CITES Export Permit is approved by the Canadian government, the documents will be provided to the buyer to apply for any needed import permits. If the buyer's government refuses to issue an import permit (and the skull is still in our possession), we will refund 50% of the purchase price. If the buyer grows impatient with the permit processing times (which are entirely out of our control) and wishes to cancel their order, the purchase will be subject to a 50% cancellation fee. Items seized by foreign governments will not be refunded.
By purchasing this item you are agreeing to these conditions.**
