A large bear related closely to the brown bear, found in the Arctic regions. Most carnivorous of bears, feeding mainly on seals. The polar bear (Ursus maritimus) is a bear that is native to the Arctic Ocean and its surrounding seas. It is one of the world's largest carnivores found on land, a title …it shares with the Kodiak Bear. The adult male weighs from 880-1,500 pounds, while an adult female is about half that size. The polar bear is closely related to the brown bear, but it has evolved to occupy a narrow ecological niche, with many body characteristics adapted for cold temperatures, for moving across snow, ice, and open water, and for hunting the seals which make up most of its diet. Polar bears are an endangered species, and global warming is contributing to their decline. Polar bears are a species of bear living in the freezing cold waters or land of the Arctic Polar bears are black bears with clear fur; their fur is actually hollow. They live in cold climates and range in the arctic. They eat a variety of seals, fish, etc. They only have one or two cubs per year. Normally solitary creatures. big white bears that live in the north A regular bear species once came to somewhere cold and they were forced to adapt. Hence, the wondrous polar bear. (MORE)
They live in the polar region because it is cold, icey, snowy and their fur is meant for the cold and polar bears love cold.
Yes, they do. When food is scarce they will fight each other for food that is available. Male polar bears will also fight each other over female polar bears.
well they mainly sleep but they also catch fish. and if they have young cubs/babies they get up in the night and get fish,kill the fish and give it to the baby in the morning. mostly just kill eat and sleep I think because I am not a polar bear expert They sleep, eat, and play. They find a mate to m…ate with and create cubs, or baby polar bears. They swim to different hunting areas for seals and they teach their young how to swim, and hunt. They dig dens to help survive the harsh cold winter extremes. Polar bears hunt, eat, sleep, have cubs and feed their cubs. And that is pretty much it. they cache fish by dunking there heads under water and grit it by the polar bears teethe (MORE)
All humans living on this planet right now are in charge of doing their part to protect these magnificent creatures from the threat of extinction. And we can not sit by idly and assume that what happens to these bears doesn't affect us. They are the top predator in the Arctic. If their habitat an…d food sources are not preserved, they will move closer to humans to hunt and forage which places all humans in the area at risk. They may eat our pets, stock, and perhaps even us. We should protect them and their environment from climate warming and from the melting of their ice hunting grounds. They are adapted so well to the cold that they could have problems with overheating and hyperthermia if the conditions warm too much. We should learn as much as we can about them and their needs and habits. We should demand that oil production be moved from their ecosystem and that man stops the negative impacts and pollution in their territory. Protect them from pollution. Poisons and toxins from pollution are a current major concern since being at the top of the food chain, they are eating poisons from all the animals beneath them on the chain. Assure that governments not only continue to protect them by law, but also in practice. Allow no sport hunting. Wear none of their fur. Protect their habitat. Start planning now for how we can improve their reproductive rates and protect them from climate change. (MORE)

Not usually. They do fight with each other but, under the most extreme circumstances, I doubt the instinct for eating each other is present!. Additional Info: Polar Bear, males will fight during the mating season for breeding rights, usually they try to avoid a direct confrontation by using posturi…ng and vocals. They are not territorial, therefore, there are no battles over borbers, and encroachment. It has been reported that some Polar Bears, live off their fat reserves for several months during the summer when sea ice is not available. They have also been seen eating any, and everything from reindeer, birds, eggs, small rodents, and crabs, to berries, roots, and kelp. They will scavenge the old carcasses of dead walruses, seals, and "yes" even their own kind, the polar bears. Also, any whales washed up with rotten blubber, are fair game for starving polar bears. In fact, the dump at Churchill, Manitoba had to be closed down for the safety of the Polar Bears. They would try to eat anything, being curious, the scavenged food included, car batteries, plastic, hydraulic fluid, styrofoam and motor oil, just to name a few. For more details see the sites listed. Adult males will sometimes kill and devour unprotected cubs. Yes. Although it is extremely rare, polar bears may kill or eat smaller bears, or kill cubs from another bear. (MORE)
Definitely. A polar bear is much bigger and stronger than a grizzly bear, when it has sharper claws, stronger jaws, and is a better killer. Large male polar bears are larger than male grizzlies. However, since the grizzly is a race of the brown bear, which has specimens as large as polar bears, it's… hard to say. The race called grizzly bear is somewhat smaller than the coastal race called Kodiak bear. There exists video of a grizzly bear driving polar bears away from a garbage dump. (MORE)
Polar bears live at the polar region (the Arctic) of the world, and are only found there, unlike other bears. This is why they're called "polar bears." The polar bear is called a polar bear because it is a bear, andlives in the area of North pole in the Arctic. So Don't Be Fooled When You Think That… Polar Bears Eat Penguins.Because They Live In Diffrent Places. (MORE)
well, you can do anything. you can sell things and donate the money you get to that kind of bear that needs help the most.
They are naturally aggressive to other male bears when they encounter each other, although polar bears are free ranging and don't establish and mark territory. They will attack and kill the cubs of another male so that they can then mate with the female. They will fight with the female as she tries …to protect the cubs. Other times because they are protecting their food supply or trying to take food from another. (MORE)

polar bears live in the north pole because the north pole is cold and polar bears can trap warmth in their skin
Polar bears live in the Arctic, including Canada and Svalbard (a group of islands north of Scandinavia), Denmark, Norway, USSR/Russia, and the US.
Male polar bears sometimes do this to cubs of other males so that the female will be ready to breed again with them.
The Polar Bear is the largest species of bear, however, the Kodiak Bear, a sub species of Brown Bears, has been known to grow larger than Polar Bears. They live on the Alaskan coast.
According to the oldest known fossil records of the Polar Bear, dating back about 130,000 years. It's believed that the Polar Bear "diverged" about 200,000 years ago from their closely related ancestor the Brown Bear. The Brown Bear is still a close relative, and can even be cross bred with a Polar …Bear, to produce cubs that will grow up to be fertile adults. For more details, please see sites listed below.

Swim, run, smell things from very far away, survive extremely cold habitats, act as the top predator in their range, hunt and eat, fish, sleep, hibernate, play, forage, dig snow dens, breed, females care for cubs, fight, travel vast distances, absorb heat from the sun in their black skin, use air as… insulation inside their hollow hairs on their fur, gain a lot of weight preparing for gestation... to list a few of many things. Most of the time you will find polar bears hunting for food. Forfun polar bears enjoy swimming and playing with their young. (MORE)
Because it would be genetically impossible. My parents are human beings, therefore, I had no choice in the matter. Had my parents been polar bears, then I would have been one. An animal has no choice but to be what their parents are, dogs don't have kittens, and cats don't have puppies. It is nature…'s perfect law, like begets like. (MORE)
Yes they are very aggressive and can attack cubs especially if they want to breed with the mother or, rarely, if they are very hungry.
Polar bears are very aggressive to other bears and can consider their young to be competition.
Male Polar Bears are mean to each other around mating season and they tend to kill baby cubs sometimes because they are mad at the other male Polar Bear.
Other types of bears can climb trees and can survive in warm temperatures. These are not things that polar bears can do.
The male is more known to do this, although females bears can and do kill their young.
No there are no polar bears featured in the movie. It is just the name of the train that travels that area.
Yes, they are also one of the strongest animals. Average weight of polar bear is 700 kg, they can weight up to 1102 kg, they can stand up to amazing 375 centimeters. This is a list of the strongest animals on the planet. This is maybe the most accurate list.

brown bears and polar bears big are both big and fat they both love fish that com from ponds or oceans.
All animals change when they infiltrate new habitat to adapt to life in that location. It is believed, based on fossil record and DNA, that the brown bear, Ursus arctos, became isolated during a period of glaciation in the Pleistocene period and the animals who adapted to that colder harsh environme…nt eventually became a new species, the polar bear, around 200,000 years ago. Animals change/evolve to adapt and survive as habitats and food sources change. They can change over time into an entirely new species that is stronger and better suited to the current conditions because of the adaptations. The ones that manage to do well live to produce more offspring with the newest adaptations. While those who do not change or have changes that do not provide improvement for survival in the new habitat die. The offspring with each adaptation are a bit better able to thrive in that environment and more and more of the new offspring have the evolved characteristics that have been successful. These things continue on and on over hundreds of thousands of years through the genetic process of mutation and evolution. it is called a polar bear because it lives at the north pole . polar bears only live in the Arctic (the north Pole) do not live in Antarctica (the south).

If I would suddenly be a polar bear the first thing I would probably do is wonder how I turned into a polar bear. If that costs me too much energy or I don't like thinking about difficult human things with my polar bear brain I would walk somewhere where it's colder in the hope to find other polar b…ears. And of course I would go fishing and hunting. The most important thing I would do: go to the room of my little brother, hide under his bed and scare him in the middle of the night. Nobody would believe him of course - I mean why should a polar bear be under a child's bed in the middle of the night - It's the perfect joke. (MORE)
A polar bears fur appears white, but it is actually clear. It is hollow fibre and traps heat to keep it warm. The white that it appears too protects them from predators (if any) and mainly to keep them hidden from their prey. They have a extra layer of blubber to keep warm and they have improved eye…sight and hearing. They have big paws to keep balance and their weight over thin ice. (MORE)
Polar bears are larger and more powerful than the koala. Face to face the koala would die. . However, given that koalas live in Australia and polar bears are only found in Arctic regions, the two would never meet or be in a position of confrontation. Also, koalas can climb trees which grow verti…cally. Polar bears would be unlikely to match this feat. (MORE)
Polar bears are larger than grizzlies of the interior, but the brown bears of the coastal regions are as large or larger. Grizzlies are a race of the brown bear.
They have long hairs, black skin that you can't see to attract sunlight, and four inches of blubber under their skin to keep warm. They are so efficient at keeping heat inside them that they are almost invisible in infrared photography.
You can breed a polar bear and a brown bear and get a fertile offspring. You can not breed black bears and polar bears successfully.
a polar bear is a cub from birth to the age of six months. Then they are 'children' until 5. From then until age 16, they are young adults, in their prime. 16 to 19 makes them adults. Any older, and they are seniors.
Polar Bears are alot like humans: Eat other animals, starts a baby then grows into an adult, and mammals. They also are like us because if it is a cannibal Polar Bear then yes it would, but that would be if it ran out of all other food options. So that's rare, because they eat Seals, Whales, Narwhol…s, a few other sea creatures, and if none of that is available, rodents. So it's rare, but yes, on a rare occasion a Polar Bear will eat another Polar Bear. Adult males will often kill and consume cubs, especially if unguarded by the female. (MORE)
Not unless we have another ice age and then it would likely take hundreds of thousands of years, if not millions.

This is thought to have happened due to their isolation during a period of glaciation in the Pleistocene period.. (MORE)
Only if it's a male bear that has happened upon some bear cubs yes. Otherwise, no, polar bears do not eat each other, they'd rather eat seals, whales and walruses than another bear.
there are no different sorts of polar bears, like there are different sorts of cats. There are only the stages of life a polar bear goes through, from cub to adult.
The only variances in "look" between Polar Bears and Adult Polar Bears would be based on the gender and age of the bear(s).
You really can't. You don't want a polar bear as a pet, they may look cute, but they are nothing big gigantic killing machines. Also, you would have to live north of the arctic circle.
yes, the polar bears are related to the brown bear according to fossils long ago
Not really. They can be just as dangerous as any other bear. Any bear can be dangerous, but the species with the most human attacks is the American black bear. The Asiatic sloth bear is also considered a very ill tempered species, and is credited with many attacks on humans. The brown or grizzly bea…r can be more dangerous because of its size and power, but the most dangerous situation one can be in is to surprise a female bear of any species with her cubs. The best way to avoid this is to make noise while in bear country. Normally, the bears will move off if they hear you coming. (MORE)
Well, There really isn't much difference. The word 'grizzly' means snow in latin, Polar is a region that is near one of the poles (north and south). They both live in extremely cold conditions and are capable of living off one decent meal every few months (e.g. a seal). They are both white in colour… as the have a genetic defect in the colour of their fur, meaning that their fur is clear and they appear the colour of their skin: white. So, to recap, they are both white, they both live in polar regions and are both able to go an extremely long time without food. Hope this helps. The grizzly has silver tipped hairs on its brown fur, giving it a grizzled appearance. The grizzly is a race of the brown bear, and it and the polar bear are very closely related, the polar splitting off from the family around 400,000 years ago. (MORE)
Polar bears share many of the same traits as other bears, in particular their cousins the brown bear, to which they are closely related. Every creature is adapted to its environment, and the polar bear when it split from the brown bear group several thousand years ago, adapted to life in the Arctic,… feeding mainly on seals, which makes the polar bear the most carnivorous of all bears.

THey live in the polar ice because their fur and they are used to that temperature
There may be no polar bears where you live because it is not cold enough for them to live there. But there ARE polar bears in this world, you just have to head to the far north (i.e., Churchill, Manitoba, Canada) in order to see them in their natural habitat. Or, just go to a zoo that has them.
They live alone, not in pacts. Females take care her children, until she weans them when they're about two and half years old. The mother will then chase them away. Young siblings sometimes travel together for a few weeks or months, sharing food as they learn to hunt. Unrelated females and males onl…y meet when they're ready to breed. (MORE)
Polar bears are animals of Arctic regions. The only polar bears here are in the NC Zoo.
Polar Bears live in cold/arctic climates, and because the coldestclimates are near the Earth's poles, they are named Polar Bears.
