Artist's Description

Ever so curious, this polar bear is eyeing our little boat to see what we’ll do next. Extremely powerful muscles make the polar bear an expert swimmer. Using its forepaws to propel its body through the water, hind quarters just sail along behind the bear. Perfectly adapted to the Arctic, the polar bear reigns supreme over its realm.

The bear was spotted swimming toward shore amidst ice near the Churchill River so our visit with this ice bear was brief so as to allow it to continue on its way.
