Cuddling her babes

Into the water she wades

For she is to feed her babes

Darling family God made.






The polar bear lives in the north where

ice and snow are on the ground all the

time. He eats seals and fish that are to be

found in that region.

His fur is very long and white like the

snow and ice amid which he lives. As the

weather is very cold where he lives, he

needs the thick, warm coat with which he

is provided.

These bears are sometimes carried off to

sea upon cakes of ice broken off by the

waves, and they have been known to swim

thirty or forty miles to get to their home



  Polar Bear-Ice Bear

The polar bear (Ursus maritimus) is a bear native largely within the Arctic circle encompassing the Arctic Ocean, its surrounding seas and surrounding land masses. It is the world's largest land carnivore and also the largest bear, together with the omnivorous Kodiak bear, which is approximately the same size. A boar (adult male) weighs around 350–700 kg (770–1,500 lb), while a sow (adult female) is about half that size. Although it is closely related to the brown bear, it has evolved to occupy a narrower  ecological niche, with many body characteristics adapted for cold temperatures, for moving across snow, ice, and open water, and for hunting the seals which make up most of its diet. Although most polar bears are born on land, they spend most of their time at sea. Their scientific name means ”maritime bear”, and derives from this fact. Polar bears can hunt their preferred food of seals from the edge of sea ice, often living off fat reserves when no sea ice is present.

The polar bear is classified as a vulnerable species, with eight of the nineteen polar bear subpopulations in decline. For decades, large scale hunting raised international concern for the future of the species but populations rebounded after controls and quotas began to take effect. For thousands of years, the polar bear has been a key figure in the material, spiritual, and cultural life of Arctic indgenous people, and polar bears remain important in their cultures.  Wiki
