February 27th Polar Bear Day

Polar Bears live in colder climates, obviously. The grow up to nine foot tall and can weigh as much as 1,400 pounds. Interestingly, all polar bears are left handed, or pawed as you might call it. And though they are obviously white in color, their skin is black and lined with a layer of blubber to keep them warm. They are wonderful swimmers and generally will leave people alone unless they are threatened or extremely hungry. Their main source of food are seals.

How to celebrate – Be aware that polar bears, like all animals, are threatened by our invasion of their habitat. Watch videos of polar bears, it’s much safer that way. Admire the beasts of the world, they have survived despite what man has done to them.
