  • mosaic_world

    wow. you guys are really organized. thank you.
    ? for explore, for digital storytelling class, I put together a video about food waste, climate control, and polar bears. do you mind if I post the link to it from the polar bear cam forum and katmai bear cam forum? I would like to post on a Sunday.

    • http://explore.org/ explore.org

      Yes please! We’d love to see it.

  • Homebird

    Waiting with baited breath for this cam to start! :-)))

  • Mrs. Ciparelli

    Mrs. Ciparelli’s second grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut is getting excited too! We’ve been reading a lot about polar bears and have a lot of questions!

    • http://explore.org/ explore.org

      We’re so excited to have you! Love it when you join the chats.

      • Mrs. Ciparelli

        Do we write our questions right here?

        • http://explore.org/ explore.org

          On the tundra buggy page: explore.org/bearchat

  • Mrs. Ciparelli

    What adaptations do polar bears use to survive?

    Annabella and Hailey

    -Mrs. Ciparelli’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • Alysa_PolarBearsInternational

      They have a thick layer of fat and fur to keep warm, they are white to blend into the sea ice, they have very sharp and hooked claws to grab seals with, huge paws to distribute their weight over thin sea ice, and a skull that has huge jaw muscles and no hump (like a grizzly) to easily jump through a seal hole and clamp a seal in their mouth. Those are just a few ways a polar bear is adapted to the Arctic!

  • Mrs. Ciparelli

    Do polar bears eat snow?

    Rhianna, Drake and Bailey

    -Mrs. Ciparelli’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • Alysa_PolarBearsInternational

      They don’t usually as they can make their own water, but sometimes they will! Let us know if you see them doing that on the cam!

  • Mrs. Ciparelli

    What do polar bears eat/drink?

    Sarah and Maddy

    -Mrs. Ciparelli’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • Alysa_PolarBearsInternational

      Their favorite food is seals and they do drink some water, but they actually make their own water from all the fat they eat and store on their body!

  • Mrs. Ciparelli

    Do polar bears have any predators?

    McKaila

    -Mrs. Ciparelli’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • Alysa_PolarBearsInternational

      They have no predators in the wild, only sometimes humans!

  • Mrs. Ciparelli

    Where do polar bears live?

    -Emma

    -Mrs. Ciparelli’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • Alysa_PolarBearsInternational

      All over the Arctic, wherever there is sea ice and seals. Not right at the North Pole though, there aren’t any seals there!

  • Mrs. Ciparelli

    Can polar bears breathe underwater?

    -Jacob S, Jake D, Julie and Andrew

    -Mrs. Ciparelli’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • Alysa_PolarBearsInternational

      Polar bears have valves in their nose that close while they are swimming. They can hold their breath without water getting in, but they can’t actually breathe underwater!

  • Mrs. Ciparelli

    How old do polar bears live to be?

    -Lila

    Mrs. Ciparelli’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • Alysa_PolarBearsInternational

      In the wild, they can live until their mid- to late 20s. In a zoo, one polar bear lived to 42! Zoo bears have less stress than wild bears.

  • Mrs. Ciparelli

    How many cubs do female polar bears have a year?

    Caden

    -Mrs. Ciparelli’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • Alysa_PolarBearsInternational

      Usually 1 or 2, sometimes they will have 3! Three cubs is a lot for a mom to raise though, so triplets are getting much less common.

    • Guest

      Cade, great question! Female polar bears that are pregnant will generally have two cubs, but sometimes they have one, and every once in a while they will have three. They stay with their cubs for 2 and a half years before the cubs head out on their own.

  • Mrs. Ciparelli

    How many miles can a polar bear run?

    Luke

    -Mrs. Ciparelli’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • BuggyOne_PBI

      Good question Luke! Polar bears spend a lot of their time slowly walking through the arctic, but they do their best to save energy by not running unless they have to. Usually polar bears will only run if they are being chased by something or chasing something, and they will not run very far before they become too tired to run any more. But they will walk hundreds, or even thousands of miles!

  • Mrs. Ciparelli

    How long can they hold their breathe underwater?

    Jacob S

    -Mrs. Ciparelli’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • Alysa_PolarBearsInternational

      In the wild, they can live until their mid- to late 20s. In a zoo, one
      polar bear lived to 42! Zoo bears have less stress than wild bears.

  • Dawn

    How long are their claws?

    William

    Mrs. Delpha’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • BuggyOne_PBI

      Hey William! Polar bears claws are long, sharp and curved, like a BIG cat’s claw. The bigger the bear, the bigger the claws. An average size would be about an inch and a half to two inches long.

  • Dawn

    How long do polar bears live?

    Alex, Kylie, and Ben

    Mrs. Delpha’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • Alysa_PolarBearsInternational

      In the wild, they can live until their mid- to late 20s. In a zoo, one
      polar bear lived to 42! Zoo bears have less stress than wild bears.

  • Dawn

    Do polar bears fight with each other?

    Imilia

    Mrs. Delpha’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • Alysa_PolarBearsInternational

      Yes! They fight for females during mating season and sometimes over food! They fight hard and often end up with many scars!

  • Dawn

    Where do polar bears live?

    Emily and Madelyn

    Mrs. Delpha’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • Alysa_PolarBearsInternational

      All over the Arctic, wherever there are seals and ice. They don’t live near penguins!

  • Dawn

    Do polar bears eat people?

    Robert

    Mrs. Delpha’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • Alysa_PolarBearsInternational

      Only on very rare occasions! They would much prefer a very tasty seal :)

    • Sue

      So nice to see teachers involving the children in nature! It warms my heart to read the questions and comments out of the mouths of babes! You fall into the category of a great teacher Dawn! Thank you, wish there were more like you!

  • Dawn

    Do polar bears hibernate?

    Jonanthony

    Mrs. Delpha’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • Alysa_PolarBearsInternational

      They don’t have true hibernation like black and grizzly bears. Polar bear moms go into dens to give birth and their metabolism slows down for months, but they are not really hibernating. Also, their metabolism slows down when they are on land while they wait for the sea ice to come back, but again it’s not hibernation.

  • Dawn

    Why are polar bears white?

    Angie

    Mrs. Delpha’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • Alysa_PolarBearsInternational

      They have translucent (clear) fur that is hollow. The light reflecting off and though it make it look white!

  • Dawn

    Do polar bears hunt with their babies?

    Sophia, Alyssa, and Caroline

    Mrs. Delpha’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • BuggyOne_PBI

      Hey Girls! It’s important that mother polar bears teach their cubs how to hunt after they leave their dens and go out onto the sea ice. Cubs will learn how to hunt by carefully watching mom as she stalks and attacks seals on the ice.

  • Dawn

    How long do baby polar bears stay with their mothers? How much do baby polar bears weigh?

    Jeanne

    Mrs. Delpha’s 2nd grade class at John Pettibone Elementary in New Milford, Connecticut

    • BuggyOne_PBI

      Hey Jeanne! When baby polar bears are born in the winter they only weigh slightly more than one pound! Compared to their 500 pound mothers, that’s really tiny! When they come out of their dens in the spring, they will have put on a lot of weight and they will weigh around 25 pounds.

  • Dawn

    Is it beginning soon?

  • evangelinebrabant

    Hopefully, the people of Churchill will remind those who forget to take care of the bears, and Churchill’s main source of income, to not drink and wander the streets, especially at night, or saunter home from a Hallow e’en party at 5:00 A.M.

    Two bears shot last year, one of them not involved in the attack, an orphaned cub, and the older man who tried to help this foolish woman ending up in the hospital along with the woman who caused it all.

    A few years earlier, another drinker, out at night, attacked by a bear. Everone in Churchill knows the rules, and the importance of what residents do there, especially people who have lived their entire lives in Churchill.

    • SarahBear

      It’s weird how I don’t feel bad for the mauled humans… It’s definitely out of stupidity – I would – as I know we all would – be incredibly mortified if another bear becomes injured. It’s just lazy and stupid for humans to “get home real quick”. But really, I mean come on, they’re drunk, they’ve got super human powers, right?! Idiots. How terrible for the bears and the orphaned cub
