Quote from: "BigBendHiker"The July report is on the website:http://www.nps.gov/bibe/naturescience/upload/sightings_0706.pdfHere is the link to the "wildlife sightings" page on the BIBE website:http://www.nps.gov/bibe/naturescience/sightings.htmMama bear and two cubs are sighted almost daily now in the Basin campground. Have not, as of yet, seen them myself. But, my camera goes with me everywhere out here.
Interestingly they drank all of the soda that had sugar in it, but left cases of Diet Coke alone. How could they tell what was inside the cans??
http://www.americanbear.org/senses.htm[/url]"]There is perhaps no other animal with a keener sense of smell. Bears rely on their sense of smell to locate mates, detect and avoid danger in the form of other bears and humans, identify cubs, and FIND FOOD. Although the region of the brain devoted to the sense of smell is average in size, the area of nasal mucous membrane in a bear's head is one hundred times larger than in a human's. This gives a bear a sense of smell that is 7 times greater than a bloodhound's.
