The grizzly bear (Ursus arctos ssp.), less commonly known as the silvertip bear, is a large subspecies of brown bear inhabiting North America. Scientists generally do not use the name grizzly bear but call it the North American brown bear.

Multiple morphological forms sometimes recognized as subspecies exist, including the mainland grizzly bear (Ursus arctos horribilis), Kodiak bear (Ursus arctos middendorffi), peninsular grizzly bear (Ursus arctos gyas), and the recently extinct California grizzly (Ursus arctos californicus) and Mexican grizzly bear (Ursus arctos nelsoni). On average bears near the coast tend to be larger while inland Grizzlies tend to be smaller.

The Ussuri brown bear (Ursus arctos lasiotus) inhabiting Russia, Northern China, and Korea is sometimes referred to as black grizzly although it is a different subspecies from the bears in America.

Scientific Name: Ursus arctos horribilis Ord, 1815
Common Names: Grizzly Bear, North American Brown Bear, Silvertip Bear
