Grizzly Bear Ready to Pounce on the Salmon

Grizzly Bear Ready to Pounce on the Salmon. This bear was so excited to eat the salmon he couldn't hold his tongue in. I felt like he almost looked like a cartoon character of a big hungry bear. He was very intent on watching, catching and eating the salmon. This bear was a very good fisherman and wasted no time, he was very focused and ready to pounce at all times.
