In fall, pregnant polar bears make dens in earth and snowbanks, where they’ll stay (6) the winter and give birth (7) one to three cubs. In spring the mother comes out (8) her den followed by her cubs. Generally, she nurses them for two and a half years. During that time she protects them and teaches them how to hunt.
Polar bears primarily eat seals. Polar bears often rest silently at a seal’s breathing hole (9) the ice, waiting for a seal to come (10) of the water. Once the seal comes up, the bear will spring and sink its jagged teeth into the seal’s head.
Sometimes the polar bear stalks its prey. It may see a seal lying near its breathing hole and slowly move toward it, then charge it, biting its head or grabbing it with its massive claws. A polar bear may also hunt by swimming beneath the ice.
