This is a fantastic picture taken by Josh Reimer during one of our Grizzly Bear Photography trips.  This photograph clearly identifies this bear as being a Grizzly Bear. The large hump of muscle and fat on the grizzly's shoulders easily identifies the Grizzly from a Black Bear.  The large muscle is used for digging roots, flipping large boulders, or other large objects; Black Bear do not have the large hump.
