This young spring cub grizzly bear hovers above the salmon above the cold waters of Chilkoot River in Southeast Alaska.
The baby bear is eating a chunk of salmon fished from the Chilkoot. The baby bear eating probably received his food from his mother, as spring cubs spend their first summer in the wild learning the basic of survival, while their mothers provide food and shelter.
Baby bears eat tons of food, especially compared to their weight. Spring cubs weigh one pound when they are born, but will have bulked up to 300-500 pounds in only a few years.
