Polar Bears are Aquatic Athletes

Polar bears are aquatic athletes! They can swim for days at a time, covering vast distances in the icy Arctic Ocean. Their powerful paws act like paddles, and their thick fur provides insulation for these marathon swims.

Planet's Largest Land Carnivores

Male polar bears can weigh up to 1,700 pounds (770 kg) and stand over 10 feet tall, making them the largest land predators. Despite their size, they are adept swimmers, covering vast distances in the Arctic.

Arctic Cold Survival Masters

Their fur appears white but is made of hollow, translucent hairs that provide insulation. Underneath, black skin absorbs sunlight, and a thick layer of blubber keeps them warm in freezing temperatures.

Polar Bears are Marathon Swimmers

Polar bears can swim over 60 miles (100 km) at a stretch and have been recorded covering distances up to 220 miles (354 km). Their large, webbed paws and buoyant bodies make them superb swimmers.

Stealthy Strategic Hunters

Using "still-hunting," polar bears wait patiently by seal breathing holes in the ice. This method requires them to stay motionless for hours, striking quickly when a seal surfaces.

High-Fat Diet Thrives Polar Bears

Primarily feeding on seals, polar bears rely on their blubber for energy. They can enter a state of reduced metabolism to conserve energy during lean periods.
