The polar bear is the largest terrestrial predator in the Arctic, but it is formidable on land, on the ice surface, and in the water. Polar bears' large feet enable greater ease walking across snow and swimming, as they spend most of the year associated with Arctic sea ice. Polar bears are vulnerable to extinction with populations decreasing throughout their geographic range.
