At birth black bear cubs weigh less than a 1lb with only a thin layer of fur. when we first saw the twins early this spring they were at most 3 months old and the size of a small house cat.
fast forward to fall when they were feeding on salmon and they looked more like yearlings than cubs. they were bigger than some of the grizzly cubs we saw mid-september.
here is sawyer the male cub showing off his fuzzy winter coat.
i look forward to seeing the family again later this spring...
