The Grizzly bear finds a home at very few animal training facilities due to both the housing and time requirements. T.I.G.E.R.S. welcomed this challenging commitment recently when we joyfully brought home Damascus the Grizzly bear. When he first arrived, he was the size of a shoe box and loved to just sit and be with you. Grizzly bears in the wild stay with their mothers for around two years while learning to survive. We love being mom to Damascus and watching his crazy childhood antics. Grizzly bears are also considered a difficult animal to train due to their enormous size. A Kodiak grizzly can reach the amazing size of over 10 feet tall and 1200 pounds. Damascus has grown very quickly, at four years old he stands almost 7 feet tall and weighs over 600 pounds.

Damascus is kept company by Sadu, the Himalayan Moon bear. The Moon bear is easily recognized by perfect white V on its chest and by its head ruff (collar fur that stands out from the head and shoulders), Sadu loves the snow and cold because it is part of his natural habitat.
