two grizzly cubs

Two grizzly cubs take a break from clamming with their mother on the Alaskan mudflats to have a look around. ¬†The sows and cubs spend a couple of hours digging and eating razor clams each day that the tides are low enough to do so. ¬†Until the salmon start running, usually in late July or early August in this part of Alaska, the clams are the major source of protein in these coastal bears’ diet.
