Polar Bears By: ZanderF.

Polar bears are amazing because they are one of the largest carnivores that live on land. They are also awesome because they have a lot of teeth(42). They eat seals, fish, etc. The scientific name for the polar bear is ‘ursus maritimus’.The polar bear was the mascot for the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Canada!Polar bears can reach speeds up to 40 kph (25 mph) on land and 10 kph (6 mph) in water.

Though many people think that Polar bear live in antarctica, but they actually live in the Arctic. That's why penguins and Polar bears never meet .

A polar bear's diet is usually seals and fish. But sometimes they eat beluga whales, walruses, narwhals, and bowhead whales. On occasion, polar bears kill beluga whales and young walruses.

Polar bears use ics platforms to hunt seals. Male polar bears can sometimes weigh up to 680 kg (1500 lb). Polar bears spend most of their time at sea hunting. Polar bears keep warm thanks to nearly 10 cm of blubber under the skin. Polar bears have an excellent sense of smell, with the ability to detect seals nearly a mile away (1.6 km)!

Thanks For reading/watching!
