It's not always as easy as black and brown to tell the difference between a grizzly and a black bear. Parks Canada's Mountain WIT takes "Yo bear!" to the extreme in this hilarious rap video that digs to the bottom (or climbs to the top) of what makes grizzlies and black bears different.

Lyrics:

Yoooo... two kinds of bear in the valley wide
Two kinds of bear climb the mountain side
Two size of claws on two types of paws
Two shapes of faces nature embraces
Two kinds of print to give you a hint
Two silhouettes so you don't forget
Two types of ears and all kinds of hair
Check out the style of G bear and B bear

All the bears with the hump go diiiiiiiiigging
All the bears with the rump go cliiiiiiimmbing
All the bears with the hump go diiiiiigging
All the bears with the rump go cliiiiiiimmbing

Black bear in the forest; they like to forage
Grizzly in the alpine; on the incline

Grizzly bear growls: my territory
Black bear cowers: I'm leavin' I'm sorry
I'm just lookin' for a girlfriend
Make tracks! Or meet a grizzly end

Grizzly or black, here's a fact jack
Take enough time to ask what's your sign
And you will find the clues left behind
Prove that the bear
Came trampin' through there

Track, scat, scratching, kills
Rolled stones and digging in the hills (X2)

Track -- A footprint left by a bear
Scat -- Poop with berries roots or hair
Scratching -- On trees to mark a territory
Animal Kill -- Bloody and gory
Stones -- Get rolled for insects below
Bears are omnivores you know
Digging -- For roots buried in the earth
Ground squirrels are fat and give a bear a greater girth

Track, scat, scratching, kills
Rolled stones and digging in the hills (X2)

Grizzly or black, here's a fact jack
Take enough time to ask what's your sign?
And you will find the clues left behind
Prove that the bear
Came trampin' through there

When you're chattin' in Latin
Ya call the Grizz Ursa
Arctos Ursa or vice versa
Ursus Americanus for those who understand us
If you don't, hold on tight it's gonna get worse'a

Cinnamon, Kermode, Glacier and Blonde
Black bears where the black is all gone
Mistaya, Kodiak, Golden and Brown
Grizzly in another tongue or from another town

Diggin' a den before it's too late
Winter is a comin' what is my fate
Did I gain enough weight to hibernate
Did I make enough love to procreate
Gotta get fat, got to find a mate (X4)

All the bears with the hump go diiiiiigging
All the bears with the rump go cliiiiiiimmbing
All the bears with the hump go diiiiiigging
All the bears with the rump go cliiiiiiimmbing

Two size of claws on two types of paws
Two kinds of print to give you a hint
Two silhouettes so you don't forget
Check out the style of G bear and B bear
