Are polar bear testicles covered with fur?
In Polar Bears
Yes they are. They're also closer up into the body so that they stay warm and don't get frost bite during the coldest days of the Arctic winter.

Polar bears do not have white fur, but semi-transparent fur. The polar bear's fur seems colourless and for many years, scientists worked on the theory that the individual hairs act as fiber optics bringing sunlight directly to the skin. This has recently been proven to be incorrect, and the hairs ar…e not truly transparent, but contain keratin. Viewed side-on, the hairs appear colourless; viewed lengthwise (as if one was looking down a telescope) the hairs no longer appear transparent. Polar Bears are white because the sun washed the color out of the sun and turned the fur folicoles white. Actually this is common misconception. Polar bears do not have white fur, rather they have "transparent" hair or hollow tubes as hair that easily reflect the visible light spectrum and make them appear white. Mainly it is for camouflage in the bear's natural habitat, which is snow and ice in order to more easily hunt seals, fish and walrus. Actually this is common misconception.

Polar bears have fur to keep themselves warm. Underneath is lots of fatty tissue and thick fur. If they didn't have it then they wouldn't be able to adapt to their environment and would freeze. The fur acts as a barrier between their skin and the water and helps them survive the brutal winds, freezi…ng water and cold weather of the Arctic.. Polar bears actually have transparent fur over black skin. Reflection of the sunlight from the densely packed transparent hairs makes polar bears seem to be white. The bears' black skin absorbs heat from the sun. The transparent fur is made up of hollow hairs called guard hairs. These air-filled guard hairs help transmit heat from the sunlight to the polar bear's black skin as a solar heat collector. In turn, the reflection stops the heat being lost from their black skin.. Their fur is also waterproof, so it helps keep the bears warmer when they are in water. ( Full Answer )
The color of a polar bear's fur can vary. Colors vary from pure white, to a yellow-like hue. The outer hair is clear. (their skin is black) The fur, which appears to be white, is actually made up of almostcolorless, almost transparent hairs. However, the hairs are notfully transparent. They cont…ain keratin. Keratin is almost clear but is off-white, the same as your fingernails, which arealso composed of keratin. Viewed side-on, the hairs appearcolorless; viewed lengthwise (as if one were looking down atelescope) the hairs no longer appear transparent. Reflection of the sunlight from the densely packed, almostcolorless hairs makes polar bears appear to be white in a sort ofoptical illusion. The long, coarse guard hairs are hollow, letting the warming raysof the sun reach to the dark skin that acts as a solar heatcollector. The air-filled guard hairs also help insulate the bearsfrom the cold temperatures. The hairs of the thick undercoat arealso nearly colorless, but are not hollow. For many years, scientists operated under the theory that theindividual hair might act as fiber optics taking sunlight directlyto the skin. This has recently been proven to be incorrect. Surprisingly, the polar bears' skin color is black. The bears'black skin absorbs heat from the sun. Under the skin is a thicklayer of fat in healthy individuals. Even in the coldest Arcticweather, the polar bear is very comfortable. The Polar bear canswim in ice laden sea water quite comfortably. It is more in dangerof hyperthermia (over-heating) than hypothermia (freezing). A polor bear has no color to its fur. Their fur is clear hollow tubes and almost not fur at all. It only looks white to the human eye because the sun reflects from it almost the same way water in a pond looks blue because of the sun. This 100percent true and based upon scientific sources. The outer fur of most polar bears is white. However, the skin underneath its fur is totally black. Polar bears fur is clear and is reflected bythe light with the snow and ice. Polar bears have black skin. Clear (I answered in this way and I could go on in the Inpossibly hard puzzle 3 game!) ( Full Answer )
Polar bear skin is black and the fur is actually clear, lacking in pigment. The white appearance is the result of light being refracted from the clear hair strands.
The altricial young weigh about 1-2 lbs., 8-9" long, are covered with short, thin white hair, have closed eyes, and no fat pad.
Polar bears have translucent guard hairs. They are shaped like hollow tubes. They are between 5 to 15 cm long. Underneath the guard hairs is a thick insulating undercoat. They have stiff hairs on the bottoms of their paws that aid with traction when walking on ice. The males also have ornamental hai…r on their forelegs. ( Full Answer )
They live in the arctic where it is cold in the winter, the fur keeps them from freezing to death. the thick fur traps the heat between the layers of the fur Polar bears have thick fur because they live in arctic climates, which, is obviously cold. So, their thick fur helps keep them warm. Because t…hey live in the freezing cold. You try living on one of the poles without having lots of clothes on. ( Full Answer )
Polar bears need much fur to keep warm in the cold artic. This is why polar bears are adapted to the artic. Because they have so much fur to use for such cold weather.
An ancient legend spoken by Inuit hunters, saying the bear doesthis because their nose is black, which stands out against thetundra and can be seen by its prey. In Arctic Dreams byBarry Lopez, he describes the Polar Bear's behavior of coveringtheir nose when stalking a seal. Most scientists howeve…r, believethis to be a myth. ( Full Answer )
Adaptation means: a characteristic that helps an animal survive in its habitat. So, thick fur and fat help in stay warm for the harsh long winters.
I think polar bears body covering is fur. ???????????????? . I think polar bears body covering is fur. ????????????????
The fur of a polar bear is semi-transparent, and actually looks yellow up close, but the snow makes it look white. This doesn't exactly mean that a polar bear would look green if it lived in a grassy area, though.
Polar bears actually have translucent hollow fur, as such that it is so thick that it is reflected back to us as white.
Polar bears have thick fur so they can live in the cold of the arctic and swim in the icy sea. They also have a thick layer of insulating fat beneath their skin.
To protect it from extreme conditions of weather. If it didn't it would easily get too cold and probably die out, then there wouldn't be any Polar Bears! Thanks.
The polar bears have and insulating undercoat as the covering oftheir skin. This is the topped up by hairs which will protect theundercoat.
Yes they do and it is for the sun to absorb the heat from the sun
True polar bears , have what looks like white or off white fur, but the individual hairs are almost clear, and their skin is dark brown. This oddity works to help transfer sunlight to the skin to aid in warming, along with the layer of fat under the skin.
The individual hairs of their fur are clear and not white, they just look white due to light reflection and the white environment. The hairs are also hollow to hold air that helps insulate from the cold. Their skin is black which allows the sunlight that reaches the skin through the clear fur to be …better absorbed instead of reflected which also aids to keep them warm. ( Full Answer )
to keep its self warm To protect them against the arctic cold Becauseblubber = fat which keeps them warm the fur of a polar bear ( see-through fur ) which also acts as warmth fo them.
a polar bears skin is special because it looks white but its skin is really black, it is just the light that reflects off the polar bear that makes it look white
They usally have a thick fur coat so they can swim in low tempertures so they can survive eating a finding a home.
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.
the polar bear has a fur covering of which most people think is white, but actually it is transparent, and they have lots of it so it looks white! have a nice day x
It's difficult to get an exact figure for all polar bear numbers but some bears are almost definitely dying, or fewer cubs are being born, because of global warming. Rising temperatures cause Arctic sea ice to melt earlier in the year, so the bears are driven to go ashore without sufficient …fat reserves to survive late summer and early autumn. Reduction of sea ice means they have to swim more, making them weaker. Some drown. Thinner sea ice makes it harder for them to catch seals. Poorly nourished female bears don't build suitable dens, don't produce as many cubs, and cubs that are born have a lower survival rate. The Western Hudson Bay sub-population of polar bears are one of the best studied. Warming temperatures mean that ice-floe breakup in western Hudson Bay now happens three weeks earlier than it did 30 years ago, so the bears' feeding season is similarly shortened. The average weight of single female bears was about 290 kg in 1980. In 2004 the average weight was 230 kg. Bear population is Western Hudson Bay declined 22% between 1987 and 2004. Hunting of polar bears is allowed to native groups in all the countries around the Arctic Circle. There is a quota allowed. In 2011 the quota for Canada is 500 bears. In 2011 in Russia the quota was set to zero, so bears were allowed to be hunted. . ( Full Answer )
peole want polar bear's fur because it can be used for rugs or very warm coats and the white color makes the fur verry stylish.
too keeep theem waarm They evolved long fur to adapt to their cold climate. Longer and denser fur is more insulating.
Its greasy fur is water-repellent, and so it reduces heat loss by cooling through evaporation. (Water requires energy from the skin to evaporate).
no fraid not, they have pads. a bit like a dogs only they're stronger in the way that they can still work in realy cold consitions.
Yes, a polar bear has two layers of fur. They use it to keep warm if one coat of fur isn't enough.
Yes, a Polar bear's fur is white because they evolved it as camoflauge and to keep warm better in the arctic. it is a genetic trait passed down each generation of polar bears.
A polar bear must be killed and skinned first before you can getfurs from such a beast.
the polar bears fur sits down flat in summer in winter their fur is all fluffed up
No, unless they were just swimming and it the ice on the tips froze. But when warm the fur should be very soft and plush.
They are mammals and mammals have fur on the body. And also, the fur on them is too keep themselves warm at arctic regions because these regions too cold regions
It is extremely cold in both the Arctic and Siberia. The thick fur on their bodies helps protect them from this and keep them warm. It is the same as when you or I wear a thick jumper to stay warm on a cold day.
Polar bears thick fur helps them by keeping them warm. Without their fur, they wouldnt have any warmth.
It is just clear fur.Polar bears have black skin.Their ears and tail keeps them warm
It's fur reflects the sunlight and traps in the body heat from the polar bear.
Kind of. It's also for taxidermy. Poaching is the act of illegal hunting and yet people still do it. They are not supposed to and are usually arrested for doing it if caught. People also do it to make others mad and for money.
Because they live in the North Pole- which is very cold! So they need a thick coat to keep them warm!
Because when the sun hits the fur of the polar bear, the white fur almost transparent therefore amplifying the heat of the sun's rays and eventually making the skin black. Or.. sine the polar has white fur, and the bear needs to stay warm, its' skin is black to absorb the heat of the sun.
although underneath a polar bears's fur their actual skin is black , yes polar bear's fur is see through.
Polar bears do not change their fur color they do not change, they may shed but they do not change.
Oh yes, polar bears are covered in fur, which is white in color. They have four legs.
well fur is not alive and the fur on a polar bear is thick so it can withstand anything
The fur of a polar bear helps to keep it warm by keeping the warm air on its body. This keeps the heat in, and allows the bear to remain warm without losing body heat.
They don't, the fur is actually almost colorless. The polar bearsskin is in fact black.
Polar bears lay down a thick layer of fat that it can live off whenthe ice has thawed and it is not able to catch seals out on theice. The fat layer and very dense fur keeps the bear warm.
The polar bear has 2 thick layers of fur and one layer of blubberto protect it from freezing in the cold
