One of the most awe-inspiring animals to see in Alaska is the Alaskan Brown Bear.

Alaskan Brown Bears typically live on the southern tip of Alaska, where they have access to plenty of salmon. The bears have plenty of food, as well as a milder climate in this area.

A brown bear can weigh as much as 1,000 pounds — but they've been clocked at speeds as high as 30 miles per hour.
