The Polar Bear

The polar bear (Ursus maritimus) is a bear native to the Arctic Ocean and its surrounding seas. The world's largest predator found on land, an adult male weighs around 300–600 kg (660–1,300 lb), while an adult female is about half that size. The polar bear is the most carnivorous member of the bear family, and most of its diet consists of Ringed and Bearded Seals. Take a look at these beautiful polar bears.
