12" x 16" Acrylic $600

The Kodiak bear has lived separately on Kodiak Island in Southwestern Alaska for thousands of years with no interbreeding with other populations. These coastal bears have more animal protein in their diet, achieve larger size, and have slight differences in coloration. Kodiak bears can grow to 10 feet long and weigh over 1,000 lbs.
