Polar Bear Hair

  1. It is a common misconception that polar bear skin is always black. Most of the time it is some shade or brown or tan. These bears don't get their warmth from the sun, they, like other mammals, produce the heat themselves from burning food and their fur insulates and keeps the heat in. Also, polar bear hair can be white or any shade or cream up to what is like a very light tan, and can have all these various shades present on one bear.
  2. I've seen quite a lot of polar bear (skin) living up here and all of the polar bear I have ever seen has black skin, thats how you tell. And it is black to absorb sunlight, even though they are warm blooded they need all the help they can get.
  3. What are you basing you opinion on your own experience or was it something you have read? And what have you found that works better?
  4. PB and seal are hard to get but well worth the effort
  5. id just like to say, ak-47's are not illegal. anybody can buy the semi automatic version and for the fully automatic you just have to have the permit that allows you to buy fully automatic weapons.
