Audubon Canyon Ranch shared a video from Modini Mayacamas Preserves illustrating the size difference between a bobcat, a mountain lion and a bear.

The video shows the bobcat and mountain lion walking down a trail, away from the camera. The bear was captured standing still on the same path, before lumbering away.

"This bear is a healthy one, no doubt," Audubon Canyon Ranch said in a Facebook post.

The video was captured by Ginny Fifield, who monitors Audubon Canyon Ranch's wildlife cameras. She has yet to collect any video footage of a female with cubs, but saw fresh marking behavior in the area.
