Polar Bears   

1     When we visit the Arctic, we might take pictures of glaciers, icebergs, and walruses. We may also encounter the world's largest meat-eating animals on land - polar bears. Their white fur coats help polar bears blend perfectly into the landscape that is full of snow and ice all year round.
 
2     Even though polar bears can weigh more than 1,000 pounds, they are not clumsy at all! They walk quietly on ice, so other animals cannot hear them approaching. They can swim for at least 60 miles without rest. Their top running speed is 40 miles per hour! If we do encounter polar bears outside of a zoo, we don't stand a good chance of survival! Therefore, it is fair to conclude that polar bears are not the animals that we want to bump into in the Arctic.
