Polar Bear Built For The Kill

Polar bear along with the Kodiak bear is the largest carnivorous mammal on the mainland. Its white mantle makes it look almost docile and sweet. It is just an illusion, the polar bear is a real war machine. Weighing between 400 and 700 kg on average, the largest recorded specimen was just over 1000 kg and 3.3 meters long. Try to imagine then standing up as it often does on the hind legs. You will find that you are faced with an animal more than 3 meters high, a true giant.

Females

are about half in general apart when they are pregnant and can even weigh up to 500 kg. The thick white hair protects it from the polar cold but is especially the fat that makes it a real insulator. It is a great swimmer and the front paws are semi-palmed. One curious thing is that females despite the giant mole put two puppies at a time in the world and weighing less than a kilogram.

Polar bear

is present in five countries, Greenland, Canada, Alaska, Russia, and Norway. Although we face a vast territory, the population of polar bears is estimated to be only about 20 / 25,000 heads, of which 60% permanent in Canada. It feels like seals but feeds on all kinds of birds, foxes, reindeer, and even invertebrates. But to deserve the name of a War Machine. Must be said that he also eats whales carcasses,  also kills the Beluga and the Narvals that comfortably reach 1000 kg of weight.

Hunting

he hunts the seals by preparing an ambush, hears the seals swimming under the ice. He hangs close to an opening until when the seal emerges to breathe. Then kills it with a paw. Sometimes, however, a bear found a prey underwater. Digs a hole in the ice and flips it in to hunt the swarm to swim.

Unfortunately, these bears are high-risk armies because of climate change. Polar ice caps are in full swing, so the polar bears have less hunting territory and less food. More and more frequent sightings are also in polar towns. Polar Bears are present and ragged waste left by humans. This proximity to humans is still very dangerous and often bears are hunted and killed to avoid problems.

Polar Bear attitude

It should be noted that the polar bear’s hair is white but semi-transparent and empty inside. This gives it a distinctive white color that is dirty. The purpose of the hair is to make the first barrier insulating from the cold. We need to remember that he lives in a zone where -50 of temperature is normal. The second is the skin color that is black and therefore does not absorb the sun’s rays and the third layer of fat.

Needless to say, it would be desirable from governments that are most responsive to global warming, to have a visionary plan for the environment. To make Polar bears naturally recover, but above all to cause the man to find a less compromised and dangerous habitat than which we are going to meet.
