POLAR BEAR CRYPTOGRAM PUZZLES: Solutions
Polar bears spend so much time on ice and in the water that some scientists consider them to be marine mammals. Polar bears use sea ice as a hunting platform to catch seals and other marine mammal prey. Without sea ice, they have difficulty meeting their dietary needs.
Male polar bears can be two to three times larger than females—one of the greatest differences between sexes in all mammals. The largest recorded polar bear weighed a whopping one thousand and two kilograms (two thousand two hundred and nine lbs.) and measured three point seven metres (twelve ft.) long.
WHERE THEY LIVE
Nearly sixty per cent of the world's polar bears live in Canada. Russia, Greenland (Denmark), Norway, and Alaska (U.S.) are the other North Pole regions where polar bears live. No polar bears live in Antarctica at the South Pole, that's where penguins live.
