Facts About Polar Bears

Polar bears are the largest land predators on Earth, with adult males weighing up to 1,500 pounds.

They are excellent swimmers and can swim for long distances at a time, reaching speeds of up to 6 mph.

Polar bears are typically found in the Arctic Circle, where they hunt for seals and other marine animals.
