It s the largest land animal. The polar bear lives in the Arctic. It lives where there is ice. In the wild the polar bear lives up to age 25. The polar bear is a carnivore. It eats seals but it also eats fish. The polar bear can swim very well. It can be under water more than one minute. The polar bear is in danger of extinction. There are only between 25,000 and 40,000 polar bears in the world.
