30,000 Berries a Day Diet - Grizzly Bear

30,000 Berries a Day Diet - Grizzly Bear

This Grizzly may be able to pick and eat 30,000 Berries a Day. Grizzly Bears' sensitive, mobile lips gather berries quickly and swallow them whole. The seeds then pass through their digestive tract unbroken and able to germinate, spreading the seeds of their favorite berries all over their home ranges. Notice how the bushes stay completely intact for future growth. Berry season has become an important period of weight gain for Grizzlies in the Canadian Rockies that starts in July.
