Bears Back caption: Grizzly bears usually have twins or triplets, born in their mother’s den during hibernation. Cubs only weigh about 4.5 kg but grow rapidly on mother’s milk until summertime. A Grizzly mother is fiercely protective, defending cubs against large predators for the 2 years they are with her.
Otters Back Caption: Sea Otters are devoted mothers, giving their baby constant attention. They can groom a newborn for hours, fluffing so much air into its fur that it bobs like a cork and can’t dive. When hunting, she sometimes wraps the baby in kelp so it won’t float away.
