The polar ear when hunting, readily lies on the ice for hours, moving towards its prey inch by inch and ‘freezing’ instantly every time the target stirs. Only its black nose can be seen in the background of white ice hummocks; cleverly, it covers its nose with a paw to disguise itself. The wind brings a mouth-watering smell of a seal, sleeping next to a hole in the ice. Should the seal detect the slightest rustle or snow crunch, it will dive into the water, where it can never be caught. When the prey is only a few metres away, the polar bear jumps up and covers the distance in a couple of giant leaps. It breaks the skull of a hundred kilogram seal with one punch and then drags its lunch to a place, where it can enjoy the meal without being disturbed.
