All About Bears
Submit your bear ideas!!
Male bears are called boars. Female bears are called sows. Baby bears are called cubs.
Most bears live alone except for females with their cubs. Bears are unusally peaceful but they
will attack quickly with their powerful claws if they or their cubs are threatened.
Bears use their claws to catch fish or dig up food. Most bears eat meat (mice, ground squirrels) and
plants (nuts, berries, and leaves).
Polar bear babies are born in dens under the snow.
Young bears stay with their mothers for about two years.
Grown polar bears live and hunt alone. They travel over the ice, hunting for food.
Fur on the bottoms of polar bears' feet keeps them from slipping on the ice.
Polar bears are the same color as snow and ice.
When polar bears go hunting, other animals can't see them coming.
Polar bears grow to be big. When they stand on their back legs, some polar bears
are taller than a doorway.
Polar bears catch seals to eat. Seals live in water under the ice. Sometimes polar
bears wait for seals near holes in the ice.
When polar bears can't find enough food, they sometimes wander to places people go.
Polar bears live near the North Pole, where the ocean is covered with ice much of the year.
The land is often frozen.
