Polar Bear Dawn, Alaska #21761


A female polar bear wandering ice floes colored by the low dawn light. Polar bears are the largest carnivorous land mammals on Earth, male polar bears much larger than females. A large male can weigh more than 1,700 pounds, while a large female is about half that size. Many of the polar bear’s physical adaptations help it maintain body heat and survive in its frigid habitat. The polar bear’s footpads have a rough surface, allowing them to get traction on slippery ice. Polar bears have strong legs and large, flattened feet with some webbing between their toes, which aids with swimming and walking on ice. The wide paws also helps distribute the polar bear’s weight and prevents the sea ice from breaking beneath it.
