Polar Bear

The Polar Bear is the largest bear in the world. Polar Bears live on the ice, Arctic ocean and the North Pole.

The polar bear has a thick coat of hair to keep it warm.They walk on their strong legs. It has sharp teeth and sharp claws, on their paws. On their paws they have little bumps on their to give them grip on the ice.

Normally polar bears live by them self.But the cub lives with is mother for two and a half years.The mother polar bear protects it and teacher it how to hunt for food, so that when the cub grows up it will know how to hunt for food.

The polar bear hunts seals as its main food.When the seals come up to breath air, the polar bear uses it paws and its sharp claws to flip the seal over onto the surface of the ice.

A polar bear in the wild can live for about twenty years.But one polar bear in zoo had lived up to forty one years.
