Polar bears tend to be loners, roaming the vast distances of the Arctic on their own. During one of the cruises to Spitsbergen we spotted this beautiful Polar bear.

The beauty of the polar bear is beyond imagination. You could join Oceanwide Expeditions on a cruise to Svalbard (Spitsbergen) and you might spot some polar bears walking in the snow.

Polar bears are adapted to moving around the Arctic without slipping on or crashing through thin ice. Their paws, which can be up to 30 cm (12 inches) across, help them tread on this ice, enabling the bear to extend its legs far apart and lower its body to evenly distribute its weight. The footpads on the bottom of each paw are covered in small, soft bumps called papillae, which allow the polar bear to grip the ice and not slip.

Polar bears can fast for months. If a Polar bear has a trouble finding its next meal over the space of a week or more, it is able to deliberately slow its metabolism so that it can survive off of its stored fat.

Polar bears tend to be loners, roaming the vast distances of the Arctic on their own. A roaming polar bear walks at about 5kms an hour. That speed gets cut in half if it’s a mother leading her cubs. When they hit the gas a polar bear can run up to about 40kms an hour.

In the wild, Polar bears normally mature at the age of four to five years. Females often give birth to their first litter of cubs when they reach maturity, while males do not usually start mating until they are eight to ten years old. Mating typically occurs between April and May. In August females go into hibernation for about four months. At the beginning of January one to three cubs are born, weighing only about half a kilo, but they grow fast due to the high fat content of the mother’s…

Scientists have been able to record life from the Polar bear perspective using collar cameras. So far the data has revealed that Polar bears spend about 78 percent of their time resting, 8 percent eating berries, 4 percent walking, and 10 percent doing other activities, such as drinking and grooming.
