Patient Hunter
The defining trait of bears living around Brooks Falls is their remarkable skill in snatching leaping salmon as they attempt to conquer the waterfall on their upstream journey. These bears, with their agility and sheer strength, excel at capturing fish, yet they often demonstrate immense patience as they stand in frigid waters, waiting for the fish to leap right into their waiting jaws.
