The features of the dynamic behavior of wet granular samples is a rotating drum reflecting the three fundamental regimes of behavior oberved earlier were investigated. In the granular regime, the cohesive forces were relatively small, and they have almost no effect in the fluidized flowing layer. The grains were rolling freely, and avalanche dynamics was dominated by propagating fronts. These form nearly flat surfaces resulting in relatively small avalanche size fluctuations.
