The polar bear is the largest living land carnivore. Non-retractable claws act like ice-picks, and the soles of the feet act like suction cups so the polar bear can easily walk on ice. Pregnant female polar bears can survive without feeding for eight months. With an incredible sense of smell, the polar bear is able to detect prey nearly a kilometer away and up to a meter under snow.
