Product Description

Female brown/grizzlies form close bonds with their cubs, nurturing, teaching, and protecting them for two to three years. Each cub is an individual with a distinct personality. I watched this family for two hours at close range. At one point, one of the cubs chased a playful red fox while the other clung close to mom. Both yearling cubs took turns nursing and grazing. Putting on enough weight, quickly, is vital to survival. Only one in ten cubs lives to mating age (4-7).

“Beautifully written, A Wolf Called Romeo is a thoughtful and moving story about one of nature’s most evocative animals. Be forewarned: I read it cover to cover in one sitting late into the night. The author owes me a good night’s sleep; but it was well worth it.”
