Mckate described this unidentified bear :  That's the shy little mane bear who we usually only see in late evening or early morning in July. 

Mckate also shared this information :  "I know that he was also around in 2018 . I don't know before that. I would guess that he's an adult because 856 and 747 both give him a hard time. I have more videos of him , if you'd like to see them. 503 tried to befriend him and brought him out of his shell a bit this past season. "

October 2019:

2019.10.26:  "Shaggy" returns video by mckate.  Mckate shared this information about the video:  "I'm pretty sure this is Shaggy (aka Mane Bear) after seeing him sit in his favorite spot by the log. He's usually thought of as an early season bear, and this is the first we've seen of him since July. I'm really hoping he was around enough this season to get a number.

The cams have been down since the 27th probably because of some kind of malfunction with the equipment on Dumpling Mountain. Since there is no staff left at Brooks to check on things, this is sadly probably the end of the season."

18 "Humphrey" 2019 Unidentified Adult Male (Update, this bear has been identified as 18 ):

Update June 19, 2020 13:08 :  This bear was observed by KNP&P staff during official 2019 bear monitoring sessions and assigned bear monitoring number 18.  He and his extremely large hump have earned him his very own wiki page that is currently under construction. On July 27, 2019 an unidentified adult male arrived at the falls.  This bear was noted to have a very large hump, light facial fur, a rounded forehead and a possible small scar in front of his right ear. He also had prominent superficial veins noted on both sides of his abdomen. 

"Humphrey" was rookie of the year in the 2019 season .  It was fun to have a new bear show up who was unfamiliar with the Brooks Falls or the hierarchy and watch him try to figure it all out.  A good example of that was on his first night at the falls when he met 747,  "Humphrey" didn't seem overly impressed with 747's 'greeting', he just stepped in front of him, leapt into the jacuzzi, immediately caught and ate a salmon, then calmly walked away - while 747 sat there glaring at Hump in surprise, anger or disbelief like 'Did that seriously just happen?' - Humphrey was a unique looking, quirky, entertaining bear, 

"Humphrey" 2019 video list , (need to add more)  (these videos have not all been added to this page.  We hope to receive information from KNP&P staff that "Humphrey" has been asigned a bear monitoring number and will add all the videos to that page when we know his number.  Below you will find a sampling of the 2019 season "Humphrey" observations by cam viewers and park visitors:

Adult, Sex Unknown, May 24, 2019 via IzzyDog May 25, 2019 10:41 Bearcam Comment:

IzzyDog's May 25, 2019 10:41 comment with 2 photos (#1 & #2 ) by her daughter, Jordan Nelson, Brooks Lodge employee:

"A new bigger bear in camp yesterday. Can anyone identify this one? Sorry for the quality, but was taken through a window with a not so great phone."

On May 25, 2019 at 12:30, Mike Fitz commented about the above May 24, 2019 photos by Jordan Nelson.:

"I don't know who it is, but I'm confident it is not 747 or 32 Chunk. The bear is not big enough, the fur is too light, and the head is smaller than either of those bears. The muzzle is not blocky like 747's and its ears are too round. 747 has more peg-like ears. Chunk has a two-toned appearance in the spring and a characteristically big butt. I see neither trait in this bear. The bicycle wheels in the background of the second photo offer a good estimate on his height. Both 747 and Chunk are much taller at the shoulder than this bear. If this is a male bear, I'd say it's probably a younger male, not yet fully grown."

Cam viewer, Birgitt replied to Mike Fitz' above comment :

"Thanks for weighing in Mike. I should have noticed the bicycles for size comparison. After the 2018 salmon season, I would expect 747 especially, but also 32 to be very fat still for May bears. I didn't see anyone else in the bear book that I thought this could be. I'll go back and look through the younger males...but we don't have that many of them these days. So perhaps a transient or a returning youngster?"

To which, Mike Fitz replied on May 25, 2019 at 18:51 :

"Since the bear looked to be grazing on grass near the buildings in Brooks Camp, then it probably is at least somewhat habituated to people, which leads me to believe it's probably a bear who's experienced Brooks Camp before."

Birgitt again replied :

"Good observation. Is it worth looking for sows? It reads 'boar' to me...but I have nothing concrete to base that on."

To which, Mike replied on May 25, 2019 at 19:41.:

"I can't see anything in the photos that would help determine the bear's sex, so yeah, I would look at photos of female bears if you are trying to ID it."

"The first time I saw pics of this sow my instincts screamed 500/Indy.....they still do. :)) This is a NPS pic from 2016 of 500/Indy .

I call him Little Bear, but others have called him Beggar Bear or Scrappy (maybe other names, too). He's the one who waits for scraps just down river of the Office. Anyway, I thought this interaction was kind of funny. 503 wants to play, but Little Bear just wants to wait for scraps from 856. Then, near the end, 503 seems to give him a look like, "Man, you are either crazy or very brave." At least that's my take on it":

Scooch captured 4 photos and a Gif of "Scrappy" taken on 9/14/2019, shared in chat on 3/26/2020. Photo #1, #2, #3, #4 and GIF.   Mckate thought the bear could be an unidentified male subadult called "Scrappy" by chatters. The photos appear to be Scrappy. It was also noted by Mazey that this bear has a dark, vertical mark or indentation between and just below his eyes. Mckate posted a 9/13/2019 video of Scrappy above "Scrappy waits for  leftovers" that appears to be the same bear. The vertical line below and between the eyes is noted.

2019.10.13:  "Scrappy" Male Subadult with "Little Sub" Male Subadult video by McKate .  "Scrappy" is larger (than "Little Sub") and darker all over. McKate thinks this video shows them together. "Spot" comes in at the end and tells "Little Sub" to stop being so bitey with "Scrappy".  That "Little Sub" is rough.  McKate wasn't sure who "Little Sub" was playing with (possibly "Scrappy"?), but "Spot" seemed to intervene having been on the receiving end of "Little Sub's" bites in the past.  "Spot" later showed him how to play a more gentle bitey-face game, but "Little Sub" jumped on "Spot's" back at the first opportunity so wasn't getting the message.

Subadult Sex Unknown, 821 Maybe, August 9, 2019(?):

GRU posted this photograph of a subadult on the lip (p 01/04/2020 12:08 ).  GRU stated "Who is he?", but we are not certain that is a confirmed sex of this subadult.  GRU captured this photograph on "08/09/2019", but there was some uncertainty as to if the date was in American format .  There was some discussion between cam viewers that this subadult could possibly be 821, but additional information and photographs would be helpful with determining an ID.

Izzy52 posted this photograph of 3 subadults together that was taken on presumably the same day (p 01/04/2020 15:07 ).  Izzy52 believed one of the subadults in her photograph was the same subadult in GRU's photograph and that the other two subadults were 909 & 910.

821 was observed at the falls on August 9, 2019Bookmom  captured this snapshot that shows 821's scar on August 9, 2019.

Kara Stenberg commented in the tread of the Brooks Lodge Facebook post at 12:25 : "My guess is one of 128's, *maybe* one of 409's, but there were too many subs around the last two years to keep track. I start to pay attention after they make it closer to adulthood."
