A polar bear dives underwater

No Comments



This magnificent creature’s Latin name is spot-on: Ursus maritimus. ‘Ursus’ meaning bear, and ‘maritimus’ describing the bear’s habitat—maritime lands bordering the sea. And in this animal’s case, it’s a very cold neighborhood, indeed—the polar bear lives in the Arctic. A surprisingly agile swimmer for its bulk (males weigh more than 900 pounds on average), the polar bear’s massive paws provide strong propulsion through the frigid ocean. A polar bear will even dive for sea urchins and blue mussels when the tasty morsels are available.

Recent research shows that the huge white bear is an endurance swimmer as well. Long-distance swims upwards of 200 miles have been charted. Researchers theorize this may be due to the increasing distances between ice floes and land masses as the earth’s polar ice recedes.
