Majestic and formidable, the Polar Bear is one of the largest terrestrial carnivores. This large mammal of the family Ursidae, is a solitary animal. He lives in arctic regions and can weigh up to 1 ton. Its thick white fur protects it from the cold prevailing on the pack ice and allows it to blend in with the scenery. To fight against these extreme temperatures, the Polar Bear can also count on its thick layer of fat. Swimming in icy water does not scare him! It hunts both on land and in the water and feeds mainly on seals and fish. Did you know that the Polar Bear was able to slow down its metabolism to save energy?
