In early August every year, the black bears start digging up ant hills. Everyday, we see the huge craters in the anthills where the bears have made the sand fly with their huge paws.
This year, I staked out one of the biggest ant hills with a trail camera. A bear visited multiple times to dig it up. Bears eat the little white pupae (like eggs) of the ants. It is so hard to believe that they get enough calories from those pupae to fatten up for the winter!
Watch the sand fly and listen to the sounds of him digging. Enjoy the video either here or at Youtube.
