Polar Bear or Ursus maritimus, also known as Nanook, Nanook of the North or Great White Bear is a noble-looking animal and of enormous strength, living bravely warm amid eternal ice. They are the unrivaled master-existences of this icebound solitude.

The body of a polar bear or Ursus maritimus is large and stocky, similar to that of a brown bear, except it lacks the shoulder hump. The head is relatively smaller than the heads of other bears and the neck is elongated. At the shoulder a polar bear can measure 1.6 m in height.

Adult male Polar bears or Ursus maritimus weigh between 660-1760 lbs. and can reach 2.5 m in. length from tip of nose to tip of tail. Females are smaller, weighing 330 to 660 lbs. and measuring 1.8 to 2 m in length.

The fur generally has a white appearance, but it can be yellowish in the summer due to oxidation or may even appear brown or gray, depending on the season and light conditions.

Polar bear or Ursus maritimus skin is black and the fur is actually clear, lacking in pigment. The white appearance is the result of light being refracted from the clear hair strands. The fore paws are broad and make excellent paddles while swimming.

The soles of both hind and fore feet are furred for insulation and traction while walking on ice and snow. Polar bears or Ursus maritimus have a plantigrade gait.

The Polar bear or Ursus maritimus is the most carnivorous member of the bear family, and throughout most of its range, its diet primarily consists of ringed and bearded seals. The Arctic is home to millions of seals, which become prey when they surface in holes in the ice in order to breathe, or when they haul out on the ice to rest.
