Where's the Coca-Cola?
Mrs. M and fellow classmates, there are many fascinating animals in our world
and one of the most interesting to me is the mighty Polar Bear!
The Polar Bears live in the Northern part of the world where it is snowy and
icy. These mammals are larger and
heavier than any four legged meat eater. The
Polar Bears have strong legs, big feet, a long neck and thick fur.
Polar Bears main food source are seals and fish.
They like salmon the most because these fish are very fatty.
An adult Polar Bear can eat ninety pounds of food a day! As we know Polar Bears live in the middle of oceans of frozen
water. Although they live near
water, they cannot drink the salty water. If
they drank large amounts of water, it would kill them.
They get the required amount of water from the blubber they eat from the
seals. They need almost no water to
Polar Bears give birth to cubs in a tunnel in the snow.
Baby cubs are the size of guinea pigs and weigh only about 25 ounces. They are blind and hairless for the first few weeks.
Ever since people have gone to the Artic they have seen the Polar Bears.
Although they are very dangerous when threatened, Polar Bears usually
ignore people. As time goes on,
more people and industries are moving Northwards.
If we can control the pollution, about 20,000 of our Polar Bears will
continue to freely roam the ice and swim the seas.
