Where Polar Bears are found:

Why are Polar bears endangered?:
-Polar bears are endangered because humans are hunting them for their furs. When humans hunt them and killed them, they use every part of them like their fur and their meat. Bones are sometimes used for tools or for decoration.
- The other reason why polar bears are endangered is global warming. Since the world is getting hotter and hotter, the ice is melting. Polar bears use ice flows to get around and for hunting seals. Since its getting hotter, polar bears have to swim far distances just to find ice to rest on and one that won't break on them.

-These animals are 350–680 kg at adult size but the females are half that size.
-The cubs always stay with their mothers for two and a half years. The mother will chase them away or abandon them.

2. The polar bear waits until the seal comes up to breathe.
3. When the seal comes up to breathe, the polar bear uses its long claws to catch the seal

I liked your little blog until the paragraph about global warming. Then i realized how ignorant you are. Then I continued down to your version of the Polar Bear habitat. They only live around the NORTH pole! The south pole has Penguins. Do a little research before you just go typing garbage. And by the way, research shows that the earth has not been heating for some time now.
We have this thing called the sun thats rather inconsistant in the amount of radiation it throws out, thus we have temp. variations. In the 1960's the temp went down so much, many thought we were headed for another Ice Age. Many people don't know or refuse to aknowledge this fack. That's good news for you and your fellow alarmist, in time history will forget about you too.
