polar bear

Every people love cute things. In this post i wanna talk bout cute animal ever which is polar bear. Look at the picture, isn't it a cute animal?

The polar bear (Ursus maritimus) is the world's largest land meat-eater as known as carnivore and also the largest among the bear family.

Do you know?
Although most polar bears are born on land, they spend most of their time at sea (hence their scientific name meaning "maritime bear") and can hunt consistently only from sea ice, so spend much of the year on the frozen sea.



I don't want to talk much about this polar bear. You can read it more in this site.

I just wanna share some interesting facts about this polar bear.
1. Only humans prey or hunt polar bears.

2.A polar bear is so strong, that it can kill an animal with one blow from it's paw.

3.Around the age of four or five the female polar bear can start having babies. Their babies are much smaller than human babies when they are born. They are more likely the size of rat and weigh little more than pound.

4.The polar bear's fur is not white because each hollow hair reflects the light.

5. Polar bear fur is oily and water repellent. The hairs don't mat when wet, allowing the polar bears to easily shake free of water and any ice that may form after swimming.

6. Polar bear tends to overheat more than to be cold.

7. Man-made pollution is a cause of death of polar bear.
