Except for females and their cubs, Brown Bears are generally solitary creatures, but have been known to congregate. Brown Bears hibernate for several months in winter, and to prepare for this dormancy will eat continually to store body fat. At the onset of winter, the female Brown Bear enters her den pregnant with one, two or three cubs. By the time the mother wakes up in the spring, her cubs are strong enough to follow her out of the den. Because mother Brown Bears are fiercely protective, many cubs will survive to maturity.
