Polar bear cub looks up from the remains of a much needed bite to eat.

Polar bears are classified as marine mammals because of their dependence on arctic sea ice. Although most bears are born on land, they will carry out the majority of their lives on the thick ocean frost.

Their main prey are ringed seals, which they hunt by sitting still close to a hole in the ice and waiting for the seals to come up for air.

Adult polar bears can hold up to 10 – 20% of their body weight inside of their stomach, so if the average weight of a polar bear is 876lbs (397kg) that means they can walk around with over 150lbs (68kg) of ring seal blubber/flesh in the ol’ breadbasket.
