The Denver Zoo has two Brown Bears.

  • Kootenai, M, (2001)
  • Tundra, F, (2002)


Kootenai and Tundra are at Bear Mountain together. Hum, F, (1981) was at the second Polar Bear enclosure where she alternated with the Polar Bears. Although all three are called Grizzly Bears interchangeably with Brown Bear, only Hum was specifically labeled as the subspecies Ursus arctos horribilis.
