Lord of the Arctic Lord of the Arctic - the biggest meat eater on Earth. The female hybernates during the winter alone with her babies. Polar bears have small ears to preserve maximum body heat. Their eyesight is poor but their sense of smell is excellent.
They normally travel between 3 and 6 km/h but in the case of an emergency they can run at nearly 40 km/h.
After a good meal, time to practice their favourite sport – sleeping !!!
They can smell a dead animal more than 5 km away, and a seal under 1 meter of ice. Its territory is not defined like other animals.
The babies remain with their mother until they are 3 years of age. The mortality rate is very low.
Polar bears are confronted with all the organic pollutants created by man, which are threatening their very existence. Global warming and the destruction of their ice habitat are destroying their natural hunting territories and food sources.
