Physical adaptations l.jpg

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

  • 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
