The animal's scientific name, Ursus maritimus -- Latin for 'maritime bear' -- indicates its native habitat.


A mother bear, reinvigorated after a zesty 34 kilometer swim, climbs aboard her favorite perch in order to “re-up” for the return lap. As so-called global warming accelerates, more open air long-distance pools and resting places such as these will become availble to bears, who will no doubt be delighted and grateful.

Across the North Pole, polar bears stare humanity in the eye and call out in a unified voice: “Bring it on!”
