Polar Bear

In this section

HABITAT: ARCTIC

On average polar bears live to be about 25 years old.

Although they appear white or yellow in colour, their fur is actually clear and hollow, and their skin is black. Polar bears’ paws are especially adapted for walking on the ice and swimming in the sea.

Polar bears do not hibernate like other bears, but females  do enter into a dormant state while pregnant.
