Sentences containing 熊
Patterns of freeze-up and breakup influence the distribution and number of seals, the polar bear's main prey.
This inefficiency is a result of the animal's large body and massive legs and feet, which contribute a sideways motion to its walk.
These special characteristics explain its preference for still-hunting (lying motionless beside a seals' breathing hole, waiting for one to surface).
The seals surface more frequently then, so a bear's chance of catching one at a breathing hole is greater after nightfall.
