Polar Bears

 

Polar Bears are an icon of the coldness and whiteness of the North Pole. Their color perfectly suits their personality, as polar bears are one of the gentler kinds of bear, displaying an innocent, friendly demeanor free of territorial superiority.

Although they can become very gastronomically aggressive when they sniff the slightest scent of seals, in most occasions they are peace-loving and do not pick fights with fellow animals. They prefer hiding and being alone instead of engaging in bloody confrontations. There are very few recorded instances when polar bears attempted to attack humans. Unless provoked, polar bears are very harmless. When they get angry, however, one must run as they are sure to attack with ensured fatality.

Changes in global climate, especially in North Pole, resulted to the continuous death and slow reproduction of polar bears. Because of polar ice cap melting, the environment wherein polar bears live and the places where they hunt food also change, which subsequently results to their starvation, if not malnutrition.

Because of higher sea levels, it becomes very challenging for polar bears to catch seals in the water, not mentioning that it poses a higher risk of drowning.

Aside from these, the reproduction of polar bears is also put in danger as pregnant bears carry the burden of traveling to and fro rare hunting places and maternity dens.
