Polar bears

Polar bears playing. Two young polar bears (Ursus maritimus) playing in the snow at sunset. Females give birth to up to four young, every 3 years. They live together as a family unit and are weaned at around 30 months. Polar bears reach sexual maturity between 5-6 years, and from then on live a solitary life, only coming together to breed. Polar bears inhabit the ice floes and coastal waters of the Arctic region. It is one of the largest land carnivores, reaching up to 2.5 metres in length and weighing over 800 kilograms. They are fierce hunters, feeding on seals and fish. Photographed in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a heartwarming scene of two young polar bears frolicking in the snow at sunset. These playful cubs belong to a family unit, where females give birth to up to four young every three years. They are weaned around 30 months and live together until sexual maturity, which occurs between 5-6 years. From then on, these majestic creatures lead solitary lives, only coming together for breeding purposes. Polar bears are well-adapted to their icy habitat, inhabiting the Arctic region's ice floes and coastal waters. As one of the largest land carnivores, they can reach lengths of up to 2.5 meters and weigh over 800 kilograms. Their impressive size makes them fierce hunters who primarily feed on seals and fish. Photographed in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada - known as the "polar bear capital of the world" - this image showcases nature's beauty against a backdrop of frozen landscapes. The adorable cubs engage in wrestling matches while surrounded by pristine white snow and shimmering ice. These Canadian natives belong to the species Ursus maritimus or Thalarctos and represent an iconic symbol of strength within their arctic environment. This breathtaking photograph is brought to you by Science Photo Library – a testament to both their expertise in capturing wildlife moments and our planet's incredible biodiversity.
