Polar bears live in a very harsh environment with extreme weather conditions and year-round snow cover. However, they have evolved survival mechanisms to be able to survive in this environment.
One of the polar bears’ strong points is their thick, dense coat compared to other bears, which helps them keep warm during the long winters. At the same time, they also have a thick layer of fat under the skin to provide energy for necessary living activities.
Polar bears can also regulate body temperature by reducing blood flow to the limbs to reduce the amount of heat released. They have the ability to produce vitamin C on their own, which helps them maintain health when there is no vitamin source from food.
In search of food, polar bears can swim far in the sea, walk on snow or dig for food. They have a very good sense of smell to find prey and are also excellent hunters.
However, the habitat of polar bears is being severely affected by climate change
