Polar bears are very interesting animals and they adapt to their environment in many ways. A polar bear's home is called their habitat. The first thing about their habitat is that most polar bears live along the frozen shores of the Arctic Ocean, Greenland and Canada. Although they live in the wild they also live in zoos. Polar bears can survive any place cold.
One fact is that most baby polar bears are born in late November or December. Baby polar bears are well grown by the time they leave their mother's den. Dens are like caves that polar bears live in by the water.
|Polar bears like to eat seals, sea birds, fish, grass and berries. They travel twelve to twenty miles to find food. However if polar bears do not find any food they can't survive.||
One of the most remarkable features of the polar bears is their fur. They have fur on most of their body. The bear's fur gives extra grip for walking in the snow. They have a thick white cover of fur to blend into the snow to protect them from other predators.
Some other features are that male adults measure from eight to eleven feet long. Some even weigh up to one thousand pounds. Female adults weigh four hundred to five hundred pounds. As you see, polar bears have adapted to their surroundings to survive. Polar bears are very interesting to learn about.
