It’s that time of year again: The Alaska Katmai National Park and Preserve’s Brooks Falls brown bears are out fishing for sockeye salmon again, and you can watch their antics, thanks to the National Parks Service’s live webcams at Explore.org (bit.ly/bearfalls). A screenshot is shown.

If you’re wondering just how much one bear can eat, the website says that on days when there are scads of salmon migrating upstream to spawn, a large, dominant male can munch his way through more than 30 fish a day.
