Polar Bear By Jewel

My animal is a polar bear. Polar bears are white and they are mammals. The height of male polar bears are about 10 feet and female polar bears are about 6-8 feet. The weight of a male polar bear is about 1,000 pounds and a female polar bear usually weighs about 500 pounds, which is half the weight of a male polar bear. Some family members of a polar bear are the grizzly bear, giant panda bear, sun bear, and other bears, which means they belong to the bear family. Polar bears are also known as the great white hunter.

Polar bears are carnivores, which means the food they eat is only meat. They mainly eat ringed and bearded seals but they also eat other animals like lemmings, fishes, and the rich blubber of walruses. Polar bears have a very unusual eating habit. Their unusual eating habit is that when they hunt for food, they stand on two legs to smell the food easily.

Polar bears live in the coastal areas of the Arctic, Tundra. They need white transparent fur to blend to their surroundings. The type of home they live in is in a den. Polar bears usually travel and live on their own, not with others.

Polar bears have transparent (white) fur to camouflage to their surroundings and to be able to hide under a pile of snow to get away from their predators/enemies. They have very large front feet to help them paddle easily and faster whenever they are swimming.

The enemies of polar bears are only humans. To protect themselves from their enemies, they use their claws to hold down prey for their powerful jaws to rend and they hide under a pile of snow to keep them safe and away from their enemy.

There are some interesting facts about polar bears and here are some. Polar bears have black skin, all polar bears are left handed, they have 42 teeth, and they are the largest meat eater on land. The scientific name for polar bear is Ursus Maritimus. I saw these information at Polar Animals (book). I also researched some on bearinfosite.com.
