Polar bear cubs drink their mother's milk and depend on her for survival for at least 20 months. Please go to @mattiasklumofficial to see her beautiful morning stretch! Her hunting skill and success is critical for her own survival and for feeding and teaching her cubs to find food for themselves. According to scientists like Alison Ames, Polar bears may be just as smart as some apes. Their success at hunting seals in a dynamic arctic environment is one sign of their brain power. "This is learned behavior and reveals that polar bears are very intelligent animals. They are highly cognitive creatures that top the food chain in polar regions. You have to be very clever to do that. Hunting and trapping a seal is no easy matter." - Alison Ames #svalbard #polar #polarbears #arctic #savingthearctic #stopclimatechange #bwsp #expedition #mattiasklum #cubs #UN #mom #IQ #SDGS #predator @natgeocreative @thephotosociety @bigworldsmallplanet @natgeo
