Two brown bears are ready to join the fight club – while they fight for the tourists that pass by.

A Russian photographer, Dmitriy Khasanov, captured the photos when the adult bears in Kamchatka started sparring.

The bears' cubs did not look phased by the aggressive show, while tourists could not believe their luck.

Dmitriy, 39, said: & # 39; It was all kind of funny because there was some kind of fight club – with all the hunters and spectators involved. & # 39;

Two huge brown "grizzly bears" launch themselves on their hind legs in Kamchatka, a peninsula in the Russian Far East. Kamchatka has the southernmost expanse of Artic tundra in the world and is famous for the size – and abundance – of its brown bears

The group of tourists also had the opportunity to race on four bear cubs that were playing in the shallow water. The cubs didn't seem too phased by the show of the adults and were not afraid that their parents would be hurt - they kept sniffing at the edges of the sea

A bear stands unsteady on its feet while pushing both legs towards its aggressor. Dmitry said the bear performance for the cameras was so natural because of Kamchatka's special status. & # 39; The bears probably think that they lead a life of superstars - always on camera, but never at gunpoint - because they live in a protected zone, & # 39; he said

Grizzly bears like the one Dmitry was lucky enough to click on can reach up to 150 cm long to their shoulder, or up to 5 feet long when they stand on their hind legs. Their claws alone can be up to 10 cm long, and they have large canines that bear the bears visibly on top of each other in the photos of Dmitry

The bewildered cubs of the bears seemed to be more interested in the bright orange tourists than in the behavior of their parents. The presence of the cubs meant that the fighting bears were probably females who fought over territory or a female who fended off a male from her cubs

As the cubs became more confident, they began to approach the tourist's boat, which remained at a safe distance. Brown bear cubs usually stay with their mother for two and a half years
