Alaska (CNN)- It’s fat bear week and only the fattest bears need apply.

To prepare for hibernation, bears at Alaska’s Katmai National Park are packing on the pounds. The national park service has turned it into an annual online competition, allowing voters to weigh in. Twelve of the park’s chubbiest bears are pitted against each another in head-to-head matchups. There’s even a fat bear bracket featuring the husky competitors. Like bear 409, who made it to the finals with this startlingly tubby transformation. There’s still time for fans to cast their votes before the chubby champ is named.
