Brown bears are much larger than their relative the black bear. Kodiak bears are the largest brown bear subspecies, with adult males weighing up to 1,500 pounds. Coastal brown bears can also reach the same large size, feeding on rich supplies of salmon and sedge grasses. In areas of high food concentration where brown bears feed in larger groups, they avoid conflicts through body language and social structures.
