The brown bear was a forest-dwelling animal.[3]

Description

These creatures had brown fur. Brown bears on average were 9 ft (2.7 m) and weighed 1800 lb (816.5 kg).[3]

Grizzly bears were reconsidered to be a much larger and much more territorial variant of an ordinary brown bear. They were significantly more dangerous especially if challenged or threatened.[7]

Behavior

These omnivore ursoids were very dangerous and territorial.[3][6] Brown bears that had very aggressive dispositions were known as grizzly bears.[6]

Ecology

Habitats

They inhabited and thrived within dark glades of the North's many forests.[8]

In the areas outside of Daggerford, namely in the Western Farmlands, aggressive and dangerous grizzly bears were known to inhabit burrows and caves not far from the Delimbiyr River.[7]

In the Unapproachable East, brown bears could be found in the forests and along the coasts of Rashemen.[9]

Some were known to live within the Dustwall Mountains between Durpar and Raurin.[10]

History

An awakened brown bear lived on the Wyllowwood level of Undermountain.[11]

Maerovyna, a druid of Chauntea who led the Harvest House in Daggerford in the mid-to-late 14th century DR, was served by two pixies, a grizzly bear, and a leopard who were ready to defend her with their lives.[12]
