"The Polar Bear is like the lion of the north. It is the king." - Gabriel N.
Polar bears blend into the snow and ice. They weight more than half a ton. They live in the Arctic because of their thick fur. Polar Bears have a very long body shape. They have long necks to keep their head out of the water. Polar Bears are classified as Marine animals because they relay on the ocean to provide food.
