Rachel morphing the grizzly

"Six feet tall, seven, more. Muscles on muscles. Bones so thick they could have been dinosaur fossils. Matted fur that was like a suit of armor. I was power made flesh. The most powerful land predator on planet Earth. I was a grizzly bear."

The grizzly bear was Rachel's primary battle morph, replacing her African elephant's primary combat duties.


"I was thinking about flying out to The Gardens, to the zoo. Maybe acquiring some new morph. Something really strong and mean in case we get into a fight down there. A lion. Or a grizzly bear or something."
Rachel to Tobias[src]

This is one of the few battle morphs not to be acquired in The Invasion. This battle morph was acquired in The Stranger. She acquired this morph because Rachel has problems with making a choice of her own. Her dad is moving to another city in another state, and he wants Rachel to come along with him, but Rachel is overwhelmed by the decision of whether or not to go with him and return to a normal life, or to stay to continue fighting the Yeerks. Rachel, angered and confused that night, acquires a grizzly bear at The Gardens. Later in The Ultimate, despite Rachel's jealously, Julio decides to acquire a grizzly morph as well.

"My favorite morph was the grizzly bear. Seven feet tall standing erect. You cannot imagine the power, especially when united with human intelligence and knowledge. Compared to my grizzly morph a human being is like something made out of glued-together Popsicle sticks. How many times have I felt that change as muscle piles on muscle, as the thick brown fur covers me, as the rail spike claws grow from my fingers? The grizzly bear and I had been through a lot together."

This morph quickly replaced African elephant, as Rachel's main battle morph. It was her favorite and her most used morph. It was used in most of the battles. In the alternate timeline, shown in Elfangor's Secret, Marco used this morph.
