Is there more than one type of grizzly bear?

    The grizzly bear is a sub species of brown bear. This means that the two bears are essentially indistinguishable genetically. Apparently, whether a bear is called a grizzly or brown depends on where the bear is found. Only the Kodiak Island grizzlies are distinct, being seperated genetically and having a differently shaped skull. There is still much disagreement about the classification of grizzly and brown bears, and whether they will mate with members from different areas of the world.
