From Katmai National Park & Preserve FB page: :nerd:


Ladies and gentlemen, sows and boars, the Fattest Bear of 2018 is . . . 409 Beadnose! :applause: :applause: :applause:


Image

Bears must eat one year’s worth of food in six short months to survive hibernation, and 409 has excelled at that. :bear:
Her radiant rolls were deemed by the voting public to be this year’s most fabulous flab.
Our chubby champ has a few more weeks to chow down on lingering salmon carcasses before she heads up the mountains to dig herself a den and savor her victory.

What does the she win for all this hard work? :question: Stronger chances of living through the winter. :snowflake: :snowflake: :bear: :snowflake: :snowflake:

My condolences to Bear 747. :( But I gotta admit, Beadnose is FAATTTT! :thud:

4000 calories X 24 = 96,000 calories.
