Happy Polar Bear Day!

From Funny Mill

A day for the polar bears. In honor of the white furry critters enjoy some polar bear information!

- Polar bears normally have two cubs per litter. There have been cases of singles and triples.
- Polar bears have black skin
- Males can weight anywhere from 775-1200 pounds while females can weight anywhere from 330-650 pounds
- They look the whitest in the sun after molting period which occurs from spring to late summer, the yellow of their fur can occur due to the oils from the seals they eat
- According to research by Alison Ames, polar bears are just as smart as apes
- Grolar/pizzly bears are a hybrid of a polar bear and a grizzly bear that have occurred in both captivity and in the wild. The occurrence of them in the wild is leading to concerns of global warming due to grizzly bears moving further north into polar bear territory.
