Teeny Tiny, probably the son of our biggest bear, Tiny, is a cub who is way ahead of normal in every way. First, he's huge for a cub of the year. That is probably partly genetic and partly due to being a solo cub. Second, he walks with a swagger that is normally seen in only the dominant bears in the forest. Third, he is already marking trees like a big male bear.
Oh, how I wish that we were going to be able to see him grow up. Alas, as a male cub, he'll leave the area next spring to search for a new territory away from his mother and female siblings. We can hope that, somehow, he chooses the Lab Valley locale as his destination. That would be like winning the lottery!
