The grizzly hibernates in the winter and spends the summer feeding in order to hard fat in its body to survive the winter. The grizzly's hunt is usually near lakes and rivers where it can catch fish like salmon and trot. It wads into the water to catch them with its paws. Many bears lay clam to an area of the river and exchanges can be fierce and nosy. All winter the grizzly sleeps and lives off its fat.
