Polar bear and glaucous gull, Svalbard

Year: 2011
From collection: Arctic Biodiversity
Taken by: Peter Prokosch
More than any other animal, the polar bear, Ursus maritimus, is recognized as the symbol of the Arctic. With white fur and a sub-skin blubber providing insulation, the polar bear has adapted to live in severe cold conditions. The polar bear finds the majority of its prey on the sea ice – mostly seals.
