Polar bear

Ursus maritimus

Polar bear’s description

I am one of the biggest terrestrian carnivores. To resist against cold, I build a fat layer that can exceed 10cm under the skin during summer ! Despite my important weight, I am an excellent swimmer and can run up to 40kph !

20,000 to 25,000




2 to 3 meters


400 to 800


Where do I live ?

I live on the North Pole sea ice, in Alaska, Canada, Greenland and Siberia.

Which threats ?

Every year, sea ice shrinks because of climate change. Thus, I have less and less places where to hunt, breed and rest…
