The Polar Bear

 By: Tara Hickey

 The Polar Bear is a bear native to the Arctic Ocean and it's surrounding seas. An adult male bear weighs about 400-680 kg. While an adult female weighs about half that size. The height of a male bear is about 8.5 ft. The height of a female 6.5 ft. The Polar Bear has strong teeth to be able to tear prey apart and eat they also camouflage to help them hunt. They can swim fast to catch prey underwater, they can swim 60 miles without stopping. Another adaptation they have is a thick layer of fat under the skin called blubber to keep warm, and small bumps on the bottom of their feet. Also a network of bloud vessels run under the blubber.

The Polar Bears adaptations are more of a physical part of the Polar Bear. It's adaptation is to learn how to hunt prey. One of the things they are know for is hunting prey.

 If the Polar Bear didn't have these adaptations they might face difficult times. Like suffering of hunger because they didn't adapt to having to hunt prey. They also coukd suffer of being very cold, Polar Bears adapt to the cold weather and have blubber. 

 The Polar Bear is most like the seal in it's environment. The seal has physical features just like the Polar Bear. The Polar Bear has some blubber just like the Polar Bear.

 Authors Note:

The Polar Bear is a very interesting and fascinating animal. They are fun to learn about.
