  A test of reading comprehension 

The grizzly bear, a North American sub-species of the brown bear, once ranged from Alaska to Mexico, and across the prairies to the east. Human settlement, however, has driven it into remote, mainly northern habitats. Grizzly bears in the extreme north can survive on the icy, treeless sedge lands of the tundra. Populations are greater in woodlands and forests, especially where there are plenty of river valleys and open, grassy areas. Today, national parks provide the grizzly with refuge.

The grizzly is well-suited to its cold habitat. Its vast bulk, augmented in winter with a layer of fat, lets it tolerate extreme cold and also helps the grizzly charge through knotted undergrowth in the thick forests.
