831 2017 NPS photo

Subadult Female

Year First Identified:  2017 (in both July and Fall) as a 2.5 year-old independent subadult

Offspring Of:  There is speculation in the 2017 bear monitoring notes that 831 is the lighter 2015 female offspring of 504, however there is no way to really confirm link between subadults to their mothers and siblings without DNA results.

Known Litters of Cubs:  0 as of 2018 season

Genetics Study Samples Obtained:  None known as of 2017 season


Identification:

831 has not been included in the Bears of Brooks River books as of the 2019 edition. Birgitt commented that 831 has a pointy face and no personal space bubbles. (see snip of 01/04/2020 11:14 comment in DIstinctive Behaviors section below).

Distinctive Behaviors:

McKate commented about this distinctive behavior that 821 and sibling 831 share.:  "They also both have that funny mannerism where they stand up and kind of jerk their head back and then turn. 831 does it more than 821." Deelynnd shared these helpful distinctive behavior tips that help her ID 831:  "831 Salt has a few behaviors that help me to ID her: 1. She likes to stand a lot, 2. When she stands, she holds her paws dropping in front of her, and 3. She often backs up off of land into water, stepping down backwards"
