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.
