Facts about Polar Bears:

  • Habitat is within the Arctic circle.
  • When hungry, a Polar bear eats nearly anything – also you!
  • This bear walks long distances for food.
  • Their skin is black.
  • Their fur seems white, and surprisingly it is transparent.
  • Largest carnivore on land.

As the top hunters of the Arctic, sadly, their habitat is in decline. Therefore, also the number of Polar bears. Sea ice undoubtedly melts as a result of climate change. These impressive animals are on the IUCN list, as many wildlife as a threatened animal.
