In the late fall, bears become lazy and slow. Not wishing to waste the energy already stored for the winter. Still, at times, they suddenly started digging violently at one spot or another!
As it turned out, this low flat was just recently covered with water, and numerous salmons were digging deep nests, laying eggs and covering them with heavy boulders. Without hands, just with their strong tail fins!
Now the water level fell, and the nests became accessible to bears with their fantastic sense of smell.
Nests are buried well and require good efforts. But the bear works hard! Boulders just fly between his feet, some are of the size that would be very hard for human to pick!
Butthe result is well worth the effort - fish eggs, which now become delicious caviar, have several time more nutrients and fat, than the raw fish. For a bear who got it, the day is made: no need for more fishing today!
