How much do you know about polar bears? Did you know:
- They aren’t really white! Their hair is transparent. The way it reflects light makes it look white.
- They are closely related to the brown bear.
- They are very big: a large male may weigh up to 1500 pounds and grow to be nearly 10 feet tall when standing on its hind legs.
- They like the cold and don’t like temperatures above 50 degrees. That is why climate change is such a big problem for them.
