Subadult Male

Year First Identified:  2018 as an independent 2.5 year-old subadult, 2016 year of birth

Known Offspring Of:   There is speculation in the 2018 bear monitoring notes that 905 is a male offspring of 854 Divot's 2016 litter, however there is no way to really confirm the link between subadults to the mother and siblings without DNA results.  905 is not the dark eyed male offspring from 854 Divot's 2016 litter.

Genetics Study Samples Obtained:  There were no known genetics study samples obtained from 905 by Ranger Michael Saxton from 2016 through 2018.
