Coastal Brown Bear (Ursus arctos) cubs tussling in the meadow - a combination of claws, paws and noses.  The female cub (on top, at left) caught the larger male cub laying down in the grass.  She attacked, and forced him to bring all his weaponry (including those huge paws - almost as big as her head! - and long claws) to "bear" in defense.  Hallo Bay, Katmai National Park, Alaska.
