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

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.
