About Polar Bear
The Polar Bear is the world’s largest bear. Females can weigh over 650 lbs (300kg), while males can weigh more than double that.
Polar bears are great swimmers; they have been seen in open waters hundreds of miles from land. This bear’s very thick fur keeps its skin dry when it swims so it can stay warm. Their paws prevent the bears from slipping on the ice.
Males are active year round, while females usually hibernate in ice dens during the winter. A female polar bear will give birth to their young inside of these ice dens, and then emerge in the spring.
During summer months, polar bears will eat berries and rodents. During the winter, they eat seals.
