How have these animals adapted to survive?

Many polar animals have special adaptations, including thick fur and

blubber to insulate them against the cold. Here, we will list a polar bear’s adaptations:

Small ears: Prevent cold.

Sharp claws and teeth: Rip apart flesh.

Thick, white fur: Used for insulation.

Thick layer of blubber: Insulates body.

Black skin: Absorb heat.

Fur on soles: Prevent slipping on ice.

Strong legs: Used to walk for miles.
