State of Bavaria. Snowflake was born in
December, 2007 and has been hand raised by
keepers since January. She weighs 22 Kg on

 Polar Bear (Ursus maritimus) – Arctic  in North America, Greenland, Norway and Russia.  This is a large carnivore that chiefly feeds on seals and fish.  The Polar Bear is an excellent swimmer and diver.  Compared to other bears, the Polar Bear has a slender body.  They have hollow, air-filled guard hairs, which add buoyancy for their aquatic life style.  The head is relatively small compared to the body with a long neck.  The hind legs are longer than the front legs.  The Polar Bear is a solitary animal except  when mating takes place.  The cubs are born in December, but the mother and cubs stay in the den until April.
