Brown bears are the most widely distributed of all bears and one of its subspecies, the Kodiak, rivals the polar bear for size. The most famous member of the brown bears is of course the grizzly. Highly adaptable, the grizzly can live across a wide range of environments across in the United States. Their coastal cousins, however, seem to fare the best on a steady diet of spawning salmon and other fatty foods. Coastal brown bears are not unknown to weigh close to 1,500 pounds.
