Polar Bears

Polar bears are of special interest because of their large size, white color and as a carnivore in a largely unknown remote environment. They occur only in the northern hemisphere and nearly always in association with sea ice. Their color variation is due to a diet of mostly seals, which are very high in oil. The oil concentrates in their fur, gradually turning it from white to a yellowish tinge. The age of the bear can be told by the yellowing of the fur.
