Fat Bear Week

Animal flipbooks

Congrats to 2021's winner of Fat Bear Week!

At 25 years old, Otis 480 is one of the oldest bears in Katmai National Park. Some of the largest brown bears in the world live in this area of Alaska.

The fatter the bear, the healthier and more prepared they are for their winter hibernation.

Looking gaunt, with ribs showing just last July, and even with missing teeth, in just seven weeks Otis 480 bulked up enough to win the competition again this year. He also won in 2014, 2016, and 2017!

Congrats to Otis 480, the 2021 champion of chonk, titan of tonnage, and patriarch of paunch!
