    Really cool pictures, thanks for posting them.
    I was thinking the same thing CC.
    He obviously is still mixing it up with the younger ones.

    Thanks all...this bear is at McNeil refuge. Unhuntable but arguably the finest place on the planet to study bear behavior, which may come in handy next spring.

    The biologists figured this old boar at 22+ years, which is old in the bear world. The unusual penis sheath and testicle area on him apparently is the result of a fight...I didn't walk out and poke around there to find out, call me a chicken if you must! I watched him argue with another really large bear but no one wanted to fight with him that I saw, including me!

    He looks old and grumpy! They are awesome animals.

    Here's a few more. The other end of the size spectrum. I could probably wear you out...I took almost 2000 photos in 2 days!

    I thought the same thing. Was wondering if it was just a weird angle on photo or if he was that well endowed? Lol.
