Two bear cubs playing on their napping mother
Two bear cubs playing on their napping mother— These two energetic grizzly bear cubs bother their exhausted mother who has just finished fishing in the McNeil river.
These two young spring cubs have energy that needs to be spent, but they will not venture too far from their napping mother. A mother bear's secret weapon for putting her cubs to sleep is breastfeeding. Bear cubs will almost always pass out for a recharging nap after feeding from their mother's breast.
The two cubs playing on this napping mother haven't been fed, although if mom gets exasperated enough, she may feed them just to get the pair to calm down. That's a dynamic that many human mothers can surely relate to!
