Grizzly Bear~”Ursus arctos horribilis”

“Adam” is our cameo grizzly for film. He is intelligent, has a great disposition, good natured and highly trained with 16+ behaviors. His top weight in the Fall is around 850 lbs.   Grizzlies fighting - Copy (235 x 110)Adam has been featured in films, with some requiring “attack reenactments”, using our trainers as stuntmen. He is the premier “actor” in a Yeti Cooler commercial, demonstrating the “bear-proof toughness” of the Yeti brand, or you will find him on a ski lift or lounging in a hot tub in a Big Sky Ski Resort commercial.  “Yosemite”, our younger grizzly is just as laid back as Adam, with a bit more curiousity and playfulness than his roommate. They will work together or separate of one another.   Grizzly snarling 2894Rw - Copy (240 x 159)
