Just how big is a brown bear? An adult brown bear standing straight up is nearly as tall as a basketball hoop! Also called kodiaks and grizzly bears, a brown bear can grow to stand about 9 feet (2.7 m) tall on its back legs and weigh up to 1,500 pounds (680 kg). These giant meat-eaters are so powerful they can knock down a tree by pushing and pulling at it with their front paws! In Brown Bear: The Biggest Meat-eater on Land, large color photos and grade-appropriate text will engage young readers as they learn about the natural habitat, physical characteristics, diet, life cycle, and behavior of this super-sized bear. A comparison diagram is also included to show readers the animal in relation to a familiar object.
