Using their incredible sense of smell to track their prey, adult polar bears (Ursus maritimus) spend most of their lives alone, wandering over the vast tracts of frozen ice in search of blubber-rich prey such as seals, walruses and even whales. They are also remarkably good swimmers and have been spotted over 60 miles from shore.

What you are looking at is not an albino, or polar bear. This is the rare Kermode Bear, also known as a “spirit bear.” Spirit bears are white subspecies of black bears and are very prominent in the mythology of the Canadian First Nations and American Indians of the area. The white appearance is due to a recessive allele common in the population, allowing for 1/10th of the population to feature this white coat.
