Its up to the public to crown the fattest accept before their hibernation does that entail most moves? Neck flab? You decide!
Can a chocolate-brown bear devote too much go munching on salmon?
Not in the Alaskan wilderness, where the accepts at Katmai national park are unwittingly fighting for the designation of the tubbiest in Fat Bear Week- the fourth annual competition to see which birth is likely to be fattest before a half-year hibernation.
” Life as a bear is hard-handed ,” Andrew LaValle, a national park ranger at Katmai, told the Guardian in an email.” They come out of the shelters in springtime gazing poor and thirsty, and being solid in October or November is a sign of success and resilience .”
Right now, the gives are ingesting almost non-stop to prepare for hibernation, which lasts five to six months and sometimes longer. Brown suffers need overweight to endure the -3 5F to 50 F( -3 7C to 10C )~ ATAGEND winters in Katmai’s mountains.
Brown accepts are at the top of the food chain and will eat almost anything, though Katmai’s are extremely fond of sockeye salmon. LaValle said at flower season, a countenance could eat up to 30 salmon a era.” They will gorge themselves, trying to satisfy that hunger that has built up over the past half year of starvation ,” LaValle said.
Fat Bear Week kicked off on Wednesday and sustains through Tuesday, when a champion will emerge.
It is up to the public to rule which is the most rotund bear.
Each day, two bears are matched against each other on Facebook and the one to get the most likes is the day’s winner and advances to the next round of the bracketed competition.
LaValle said it is up to each voter to calculate what makes a bear the most plump. He said:” Does that represent authorization with the foot? Number of moves? Neck flab? It’s up to you !”
