Photo of the Week -
Super Salmon

This is largest salmon ever found. It was more than 1.3 meters long and weighed more than 40 kilos. This bad boy is a Chinook. The Chinook are known for using their giant rocklike snouts as a weapon against bears. The great fish clamps down its mighty jaws and the rock hard snout crushes anything in the vicinity, often inflicting great pain on the weary paws of a hungry bear.

A sight like this is enough to strike fear into the hearts of bear.
