Big Momma – Family Portrait

Here is a shot from June this year and features Big Momma with her two yearling cubs – posing nicely for a family portrait. If you remember from the post earlier in the month Junior in the Rain, Big Momma is the matriarch grizzly bear of the Khutzeymateen right now. She is the oldest known female we have in there and these two cubs are her fourth set. If at least one of each set makes it to weaning, female grizzlies will usually only have four sets, but sometimes they could have a fifth set if one set is lost before weaning for example or maybe if they had their first set a year earlier than normal – which would be in their seventh instead of their eighth season.
