Everybody needs a cuddle time after time. I bet you thought for a second that the bear was going to chew the dog. They have a rule: do not eat friends. Quiet an amazing relationship they have developed. Polar bears are the largest predators on land, and they are the largest of all bears. An adult male Polar Bears weigh up to 1,550 pounds and stand at about 10’ tall. Females are usually way smaller that males, they also weight twice less. The scientific name for a polar bear is ‘ursus maritimus’, it means “sea bear”. These animals by no means are great swimmers. They have been known to swim 100 miles (161 kilometers) at a stretch. And did you know that the Greek word for bear is ‘Arctic’ which is exactly where most of Polar Bears live. The word ‘Antarctic’ literally means ‘without bear’. Polar bears are considered the endangered species, due to the global warming and melting ice.
