Grizzly bears consists of a large subspecies of brown bears that inhabit North America. The term grizzly bear is rarely used by scientists, who simply refer to the bears by their species as North American brown bears. The grizzly is found throughout North America, from northern reaches of Mexico (formerly) to the Great Alaska Range and Canadian Rockies.
