Polar Bears thrive at the equator

Published February 8, 2010 by Sean

Since we often see Polar Bears playing in the snow, I thought that it would be worth posting these pictures which I took at Singapore Zoo. This is just north of the equator, and it was cool when I was there, just below 30 degrees Celsius. To be clear, the polar bear does have somewhere cool to retire to, but seemed perfectly happy out in the sun.

    Fossil evidence shows that polar bear populations boom when times get warm. More food = more bears.
