Despite apparent differences in size and colour, black bears and grizzly bears are often difficult to tell apart. Black bears can be black, blue-black, dark brown, brown, cinnamon and even white. Grizzlies, likewise, may range in colour, from black to blond. Although grizzly bears are, on average, significantly larger than black bears, size is not a good indicator of which species is which. The best indicators are the size of the shoulders, the profile of the face and the length of the claws. The grizzly bear has a pronounced shoulder hump, which the black bear lacks. Black bears have a flatter, “Roman nose” profile, larger ears, no visible shoulder hump and smaller claws.
