Kodiak Island, in the Gulf of Alaska, is the second-largest island in the US and is separated from the Alaskan mainland by Shelikof Strait, which is about 25-30 miles wide. The Kodiak bear, also known as the Kodiak brown bear, sometimes the Alaskan brown bear, inhabits the islands of the Kodiak Archipelago in southwest Alaska.
