Polar Bears

Parent Category: Bears
Known scientifically as Ursus Maritimus, the polar bear is native to the Arctic Circle, and is the world's largest carnivore species found on land. It is classified as a vulnerable species, with 5 of the`9 polar bear subpopulations in decline. They have a reputation as the only animal that actively hunts humans, but in fact, anything they encounter is potential prey.
It is a big white bear, has thick fur, and it's warm-blooded. it's white and furry It is white and furry. It has four legs and four claws on each. Its tail is white and very small, so small that some people don't even notice that it has a tail at all! Its face is very fierce looking and its sharp...
each polar bear has a different amount of cells and not one polar bear has the same number of cells in its body.
Somebody better tell the bears, it will come as quite a shock to them. . Polar bears are not extinct.. Polar bears live in the arctic region of north America and Asia. They are an "affected" species due to the effects of thinner ice and longer summers in the northern regions they inhabit, making...
Polar bears are losing their habitat because global warming is seaice melt and polar bears live on ice like it is land.
The polar bear is the world's largest predator found on land. As it can hunt consistently only from sea ice, the polar bear spends much of the year on the frozen sea. The polar bear is classified as a vulnerable species. The U.S. Geological Survey predicts two-thirds of the world's polar bears will...
Predators of polar bears, for the most part they are an apex predator however, on rare occasions they have been eaten by orca whales, and greenbay sharks. Grizzly bears have also been known to eat their young. Prey of polars can include, seals, walrus, beluga whales, muskox, reindeer, berries,...
It isn't really the fur that is perfect for the cold, it's the skinthat's underneath. The white coat makes it blend in perfectly withthe snow, it is also a very thick, dense coat. It prevents thestrong winds from "breaking" the coat and making the Polar Bearcold. The thick skin that is underneath...
Polar bears eat seals. Seals swim faster than bears do, so the bears need a big area of ice floating on the sea. The bear waits by a hole in the ice. When a seal comes up through the hole for air, the bear is ready. Polar bears need food, and that's why they need ice. I don't know why or whether...
They have evolved so as to be able to face, and survive living in deep snows, and digging birthing dens, and swimming distances.
he will broaden his territory and change his habits
Some polar bears are 1600 pounds and square close to eleven feet.
I would have to say no. Polar bears are built to live in the arcticwith thick fur and blubber that help keep them warm in the freezingtemperatures. They also have slight webbing on their feet thatenable them to both walk on the snow with ease and swim. Humans arenot built to withstand much of...
No, they could not live without ice.
Big feet work as snowshoes and paddles, helping the animal travelefficiently on both snow and through water. Big feet help todistribute their weight as they walk on thin ice in the arcticwaters. Big feet stop them from sinking into the snow, and helpthem swim.
Polar bears have enormous paws! On land, spreading the bear'sweight and helping them move across soft snow and thin ice. On ice,they keep the bear from slipping: they have footpads covered bypapillae (small soft bumps) and claws that are short, thick, andcurved. The paws also are covered in fur for...
In the wild a polar bears life span is about 15-18 years, and in captivity their life span is about mid- to late 30s
Easily, they have an insulating fur coat, and then blubber underneath that.
Well, they don't HAVE to look white, but it does help them sneak up on their prey better in the great white north and to be more hidden in their snowy dens with their young, to keep them from predators. Their fur is actually not even white, it is more the color of our fingernails, sort of the...
Polar bears hunt mostly seals,but they also eat penguins.They can kill humans,but I don't think they'll eat us.They can if they wish(want).
An adult is usually a bit less than one metre wide, unless it's sitting down.
there are no wild ones, there are some in zoos though.
They are not going extinct. The stable population is around 25000 animals now. a few reasons. firstly, Fishermen are capturing the fish from around the Antarctic, reducing the chances of the polar bears finding food. secondly, some people kill them purposely for their fur. and lastly, Global...
Polar bears are known to be very good swimmers. They have thick fur  and a layer of fat under their skin which help them stay warm.
Polar bears cannot live a hot area because their fur would get hot and they arent used to hot areas.
Since the North Pole is technically one point in the center of the  Arctic Circle, more bears would live in the larger area.
According to fossil and DNA evidence the polar bear evolved from the brown bear. . Bears, in the taxonomic family of Ursidae, split off from other Carnivorans about 38 million years ago. Then the Ursinae subfamily originated around 4.2 million years ago. The polar bear split from the grouping of...
There are no polar bears in the wild in Argentina. There may be  some in zoos, where they'll eat whatever meat they are fed by their  keepers.
Polar bears are apex predators, not prey. They have enough defenses against other bears plus tools necessary to catch prey.
united states, Alaska,Russia,canada,greenland and norway
No, the population is not decreasing. It is actually increasing. Yes, they are.
Usually a predator/prey relationship, with the bear being the  predator.

Some other animal species that live with Polar bears are: . Wolves . Seals . Hare . Walrus . Humans . etc.
their fur isn't white its all i know
it depends.... if their favorite food like seals starts disappearing or become extinct then yes it is hard. if i does happen then they go look for wales or walruses to savaged on
you can't it's illegal... tey are an endangered species. you culd steal one but again that's just a tad illegal and poachingis no better.
A polar bear gives birth to live young.
The Tatshenshini-Alsek region of western Canada and southern Alaska contains the largest non-polar ice cap in the world.
i am pretty sure they would feel soft or kind of prickly
Yes. Conservation effort is underway to protect and conserve this magnificent animal.
warm blooded. Nope. The p-o-l-a-r bear is a mammal just like you, so is warm-blooded, carries its young in its belly, and nurses new-borns with breast milk.
  == Polar bears usually ignore people.But early explorers to the North told of the Polar Bear's ferocity and cunning. And sadly, as more people came to the Arctic, and Polar bears were needlessly killed. ==   Thanx, Quennie
Polar bears live in Arctic regions where the temperatures are extremely cold. Without the fur on their skin, they would freeze to death.
Yes, they are dangerous predators, and have eaten us in the past, although it is rare.
YES... VERY LOUD, a ordinary human who is reflective can unbelievably hear the sudden voice of a polar bear.
There is a shark which lives in polar waters, the Greenland shark. It is primarily a scavenger but has been known to eat marine mammals including polar bears.
To dive deep into the ocean and hunt for its prey.
They have really thick fur to last them for 24-72 hours in the freezing cold
no their skin is black but they have white fur because they have to hide then catch their prey
they live in artic regions. Like a polar bears main habitat is off shore on a pack of ice or along the cost of an island in a artic region!
  murphyland but you have to go for a walk on a bike! lol
Fluffy Answer: A polar bear has two different types of hair making up their fur. Shorter inner hairs are soft the outer and longer hairs are more coarse and are called guard hairs. The hair is replaced periodically when the bear moults in the spring, Before the moult the bears hair is greasy and...
Yes a polar bear is an enemy of the elephant sea land the elephant seals are a food source for the bears.
yes, but they rather use their nose
When it is standing on its back feet, an adult male polar bear can be up to 3 metres tall.
Seals, and occasionally other animals such as whales or walruses . People and Sea Lions and Seals and other Polar Bears.
No they do not. There does come a time when the mother will distance herself from her cubs which typically means it's time for you to be on your own. BUT male polar bears, probably will kill cubs.
Snow and Ice and of course cold sea water like in Northern Canada, Churchill Manitba Canada is the official polar bear capital!in cold weather specially in north pole
It gives the Polar bears gas .
Polar bears can be found around the Arctic Pole in all the countries and continents in that area, including Canada, Denmark, Norway, Russia, and the US.
In the Arctic the temperature ranges between -29 degrees Fahrenheit to 0 degrees Fahrenheit (winter-summer).
They usally have a thick fur coat so they can swim in low tempertures so they can survive eating a finding a home.
yes,a poalor bear does bite
Polar bear, like all other mammals, are warm blooded. The terms exothermic and endothermic do not apply to species of animals, they are used to describe chemical reactions (exothermic reactions generate energy, whereas endothermic reactions require energy to make them happen).
The rsing of heat affects polar bears because the rising of heat is affecting its habitat.The artic is starting to warm up and it starts to melt the artic.
The south polar region is called Antarctica, and there are no polar  bears there, only in the Arctic North are they found.
It is not the fur that insulates the polar bear. The polar bear's skin is black, so it absorbs heat and keeps heat inside the body. The white fur is merely for camouflage.
I believe the colour of a polar bears teeth is yellow with spots of white, or vise versa, as in its white with yellow, based on pictures the teeth look yellowish..

Usually, they don't. Foxes are not a big part of a polar bear'sdiet.
How many people have been attacked by saltwater crocodiles a year? - It is hard to say....probably a couple of hundred people every year throughout Indonesia, New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and eastern India. Only 1 person on average is killed by a saltwater crocodile in Australia ever year due to...
Utilitarianism was developed in its modern form by the British  philosophers John Stuart Mill and Jeremy Bentham.
No adaptations would ready any polar bear for the desert. It wouldhave to become, genetically, morphologically and physiologically anentirely different bear. It can no longer have the black skin northe clear, hollow hairs, it must become much smaller in size, andit can no longer eat fat off of seals...
They would need the same adaptations as a camel, because camels live in the desert and have adaptations for living there.
No. The polar bear is a bear, closely related to the grizzly bear (grizzlies and polar bears can interbreed and produce fertile offspring.)
A fully-grown male polar bear can be 13 ft tall when standing upright on hing legs. That is almost the height of an African bull elephant!
Well that is because the polar bears are made to live in the cold environment. They have thick furs that don't let their body heat taken away easily. When it is not as cold, the thick fur will produce unnessecery heat which will cause the bear to die or be sick because of overheat in their body.
Yes, they are trainable. no daaa
Polar bears live 15-18 years and rarely exceed 25 years.
it is 2010 right now, so this question cannot be answered until the end of the year. at the end of the year an average is made of how many polar bears are left. if we make an effort to stop global warming or at least slow it down, we can save the lives of polar bears and the average can increase...
Yes, they do quite well in the woods.
Yes. Males do it to attract females and females do it to have land to raise their cubs.
because they got attack
It's too hot, there aren't enough seals to eat, if there were enough seals, the bear couldn't catch them, the bear cannot swim from wherever it is to Hawaii.
Almost every single one of them.
