Introduction l.jpg

  • My animal is a polar bear

  • They are the largest land carnivore

  • The scientific name is UrsusMaritimus

  • There are 19 different types of polar bears


Physical features l.jpg

Polar Bears are:

  • Tall and grow up to 8 feet, just like Black Bears

  • They weigh about 1,000 pounds

  • It has black skin and clear fur, so their fur is not white

  • The fur feels like a nice soft teddy bear

  • Their fur is oily and repels water

Physical Features

More physical features l.jpg

Polar bears have:

  • long snouts with a black nose at the end

  • black coating on the bottom of their paws

  • paws are also slightly webbed

  • small white ears that on the top side of their head

  • eyes are small and black

  • long, sharp nails

  • a little tail

More Physical Features

Their habitat l.jpg

They live in:

  • the Arctic

  • Near the seas of the Northern Hemisphere

  • Parts of the United States,Canada, Greenland,

    Norway, and Russia

Their Habitat

Climate that polar bears love l.jpg

  • Snowy weather

  • They love the arctic climate and temperatures can drop down to 45 degrees below zero

  • 50-60 degrees average temperature in the summer

  • One of the coldest environments

  • In the summer it has lots of plants so they can eat

  • They live pretty high in the mountains, because it`s colder up there

Climate that Polar Bears Love

Lifespan l.jpg

  • Polar bears live up to 15 to 20 years in the wild

  • They can live up to 40 years in captivity

  • Polar bears are endangered because of global warming

  • Losing the sea ice is their biggest threat…no ice, no home


What they eat l.jpg

  • Polar bears are carnivores, they are actually the biggest carnivore!!

  • They eat:

  • Seals

  • Partly ringed seals

  • Fish

  • Sea birds

  • Also in spring and summer they eat grass, lichen, seaweed and berries

What They Eat

Hunting l.jpg

Prey of…

Predator to…

No animals eat Polar bears-they are the top of the arctic food chain

But people kill or shave their fur to make, carpets, blankets, furniture , and other things that you might want from a Polar bear’s fur

  • seals

  • fish

  • seabirds

  • Ringed seals


Behavior how they act l.jpg

  • Polar bears have been known to swim 60 miles(97 kilometers) at a time with out stopping

  • They wait by the water until the seals come up for air and then they bite them

  • They stand on their hind legs that’s how they play

Behavior-How They Act

Polar bear babies l.jpg

  • The cubs mom digs a den so they can stay warm when they give birth

  • They give birth in winter

  • The cubs mom stays with the cubs in summer for 38% of their time

  • Adult male polar bears hunt for about 25% of their time during spring

  • And about 40% of their time during the summer

Polar Bear Babies

Physical adaptations l.jpg

  • Polar bears have webbed feet to help them swim in the water

  • Their fur is oily and repels water so they don’t get cold and can dry quickly

  • Their long sharp nails help them grip onto the ice so they don’t slipand they can also grab onto their prey

  • They have sharp teeth to help them eat their prey

  • The black coating on their feet helps keep their feet warm on the snow and ice

  • They are white (because of the sun’s reflection) which helps them camouflage in the snow so they can surprise their prey.

Physical Adaptations

Physiological adaptations l.jpg

  • Under a Polar bears fur is black skin , so you would think that it`s white but it`s fur is clear because the sun reflects on the black skin that makes the fur clear

  • They have longer heads than other bears and longer noses too because this gives them a superb sense of smell

  • Some people think say a polar bear can smell a seal from more then three miles away

  • They have three layers to keep them warm

  • The polar bear wears a parka and a wet suit, it`s fur coat works like a parka and the blubber works like a wet suit

  • They have blubber to keep them warm especially in the water

Physiological Adaptations

Behavioral adaptations l.jpg

  • They are very strong runners so that helps them run away from their predator

  • They stay with their cubs for three years to make sure that they teach them how to survive

  • They are the biggest animal in the Arctic that helps them get their prey and predator

Behavioral Adaptations

Fun polar bear facts l.jpg

  • It even eats humans

  • When a person eats polar bear liver, after a while the person’s skin will peel off

  • Polar bears have three fat layers of coat, I would get HOT in that
