This particular Grizzly bear is very dark in color, which fools a lot of

visitors to Hayden Valley into thinking he is a very large black bear.

He also has a distinctive crooked front tooth that makes a bump on

his upper lip. Snaggle Tooth likes to use the Yellowstone river to

cool off during the warm summer months. He had just arrived on

the south side when I captured this photograph. The water dropping

like diamonds from his dark fur.
