I thought it might be interesting to share some close up photographs of the paws of a two year old Kodiak bear.

The paws are huge and have unbelievable strength and agility!

As I continue to observe the Kodiak bear cubs, I’m astonished by the cubs ability to manipulate the claws with the same agility as a human.  The hump on the Kodiak bear is made of muscle which developed presumably  for imparting force in digging  and helps with when constructing dens.
