Artwork Description

“The polar bear is one of the largest and most powerful carnivores in the world. Some say he is more impressive than the grizzly bear and can be just as devastating. However, his white coat seems to make him less threatening. It can be easily seen why his white coat would be good camouflage in winter, even though it is as dark as night most of the time. However, in summer, one might think that white fur would show up against the rocky tundra landscape. This is true, but the polar bear does not do much hunting inland, and even in summer the coast and bays of the Arctic are full of pack ice.”
