“This might be the only time this grizzly pair has an interest in each other, courting season May-June. The male spends days following the female and building trust. Once she accepts him and they mate a number of times, the relationship is over and they part company. Bears are essentially loners.
Even though the female is carrying a fertilized egg, it does not implant into the womb until she has built up her fat reserves throughout the summer, in preparation for denning.
So the intricacy of nature is more complicated than we can know, as we merely and mostly observe from the outside – we truly only see the tip of the iceberg.”
