5 Back to the Kronotsky Nature Reserve

Back to the Kronotsky Nature Reserve

Posted on June 13, 2011 by team

Today we”ll revisit the Kronotsky Nature Reserve and its inhabitants.

No Kronotsky reserve without bears. This bear rubbed against a marked tree in order to leave its own individual smell on it. It is a bear’s way of communication within its population and of informational transmission to other individuals. Zoologists call this the marking activity.

Very often such marking objects are trees. It could also be rocks and stones and even human constructions. Even if there are people, animals come to pay their marking “debt”. At that time flimsy houses shake as during an earthquake.

    I love these posts made by Mr. Shpilenok. He takes excellent photographs and should write books (if he hasn’t already) about the Kronotsky Nature Reserve filled with his photographs. Thank You for sharing your knowledge of this amazing place and these beautiful photographs.
