About Yellowstone Bears
Wildlife watching is one of the great delights when visiting Yellowstone National Park.
As of 2013, there are currently 67 different mammal species in Yellowstone, but only 2 bear species.
Yellowstone Bear Rules: Always keep in mind that you need to stay 100 yard (91 m) from a bear, unless you’re safely passing by in a car.
Grizzlys can be found in the park, but also in the surrounding Greater Yellowstone ecosystem.
As of 2011, about 150 Grizzly bears lived either live fully or partially in the park. In the great Ecosystem, a whopping 593 Grizzly bears roam around the wilderness and forest areas.
A full grown male Grizzly can weigh up to 700 lbs, but don’t mistake their size for lack of speed. Grizzlies can be very agile and sprint up to 45 mph.
When looking for bears in the park, it helps to know their food sources: rodents, insects, elk caves, roots and large mammals are typically on their menu.

Black bears are a little easier to spot in Yellowstone since they are not only much more abundant, but also less shy towards humans.
Your best chances for spotting a black bear in Yellowstone are in the Tower and Mammoth areas.
