or beauty, that masks the natural intent that the great white bears are all business -
always looking for the next food source - maybe you!

Polar Bears, like all animals, cannot be measured by human standards, but by
the way they fit into their natural realm, for in nature they are dramatically well

of finding a meal before the sea ice provides
access to their primary prey: Arctic seals.
Rare social encounters provide insights into
the behavior of these solitary predators.
