Grizzly Bear Cubs Fight Playfully

Grizzly Bear cubs jawing— two bear cubs attack each other in play as they learn to fight. The bears must learn to fight at a young age, as it will become a vital survival skill when they reach adulthood. These two bear cubs are “jawing,” a behavior wherein the bears open their jaws at each other but do not actually bite. Jawing allows us as photographers to capture truly wonderful images show casing the ferocious teeth and jaws of these majestic creatures.

This grizzly bear photo of two bear cubs jawing was taken on the Chilkoot river outside of Haines, Alaska.
