Besides being decidedly plump, Otis has one floppy ear and a distinctive dark blonde coat. He's also missing two front teeth. "That makes it really impressive that he's been able to eat so much salmon," Ramos said. "We all know how difficult it is to eat after going to the doctor and getting some teeth pulled!"
Otis lives in the Brooks River region of the Katmai National Park and Preserve, but in the summer, he stays in one spot - a section in the river perfect for salmon fishing. "We call it 'his office' or 'Otis's office,'" Ramos said. "He patiently waits for fish to come up to him, and he's so diligent that he actually sleeps in his office while fishing. He's one of the bears people can watch regularly on the bear cam."
"Otis may not be the most dominant or lively bear around, but he is the fattest," the park wrote in a Facebook post.
