Alaskan brown bears, also known as coastal brown bears, are majestic creatures that can be found along the coastal areas of Alaska. They are one of the largest carnivorous mammals in the world, with males weighing up to 1,400 pounds and standing over 10 feet tall on their hind legs. Despite their size, these bears are incredibly agile, with the ability to run up to 35 miles per hour and climb trees with ease.

One of the distinctive features of Alaskan brown bears is their fur. They have a thick and shaggy coat that ranges in color from dark brown to blonde. This fur helps to insulate them from the harsh Alaskan winters and provides camouflage when hunting for prey. They have a keen sense of smell, which is 100 times more powerful than humans, and they use it to locate food such as berries, nuts, fish, and even small mammals.

During the summer months, Alaskan brown bears can be found along the rivers and streams, where they feed on the abundant salmon runs. They will often stand in the water, waiting for the fish to swim past, before grabbing them in their powerful jaws. This behavior is a spectacular sight to witness, as these massive creatures use their incredible strength to catch their food.

While they are formidable predators, Alaskan brown bears are also known for their playful and curious nature. They will often spend time exploring their surroundings and playing with each other, and they have been observed sliding down snow-covered slopes and rolling around in the grass. They are highly intelligent animals that exhibit a wide range of behaviors, from hunting and foraging to caring for their young.

TruLife® Acrylic Face Mount Prints

TruLife® Acrylic face mount prints have a 3d-like appearance due to the metallic print being sandwiched between museum-quality acrylic and a solid backer medium. When light hits the acrylic, it refracts through the artwork and gives off an appearance of having been illuminated from within. These are the most vibrant and detailed prints I offer. Your ready-to-hang print includes a 1/8" acrylic facemount with a clear acrylic or Comatex backing and a rear back mounted floating frame.
