Extractions: arctic ground squirrel - birds - whales - harp seal - walrus ANIMALS that live on LAND POLAR BEARS spend most of their time on the pack ice or in the water, where they can hunt their favorite food - the ringed seal. The white fur helps the bear sneak up on seals that are laying on the ice packs. If the bear sees a seal's breathing hole, it waits by the hole and drags the seal out as soon as its head appears. In the summer it is harder to catch seals, so before summer comes, the bears eat as much as they can to get fat, then live off the fat in their bodies. Females dig dens in the snow where they hibernate during the worst part of the winter. The cubs are born in the den. polar bear waits for a seal *** more about the POLAR BEAR CARIBOU are members of the deer family. They move across the Arctic in large herds. Caribou eat moss, lichen and green plants. For the winter they go to the forests of the south where trees give them protection from the wind and the snow.

The baby has enemies like wolves, bears and eagles. *** more about the CARIBOU THE MUSK OXEN have thick overcoats of shaggy long straight hair that hang down to the ground. Their undercoats are thick brown fleece. Some of the coat is shed in the summer. They huddle together in groups for protection and to keep warm.
