Polar bears are a delight to see. They are often featured in documentaries because of their aggressive but otherwise ‘playful’ behavior. At least that is what we perceive them to be.
Polar bears are carnivorous. Their aggressiveness is just ‘for show’. For when caught in confrontations, they are normally cautious, choosing to escape rather than fight. They rarely attack humans unless provoked.
Wikepdia has this to say about their character –
In general, adult polar bears live solitary lives. Yet, they have often been seen playing together for hours at a time and even sleeping in an embrace, and polar bear zoologist Nikita Ovsianikov has described adult males as having “well-developed friendships.” Cubs are especially playful as well. Among young males in particular, play-fighting may be a means of practicing for serious competition during mating seasons later in life. Polar bears are usually quiet but do communicate with various sounds and vocalizations. Females communicate with their young with moans and chuffs, and the distress calls of both cubs and subadults consists of bleats. Cubs may hum while nursing. When nervous, bears produce huffs, chuffs and snorts while hisses, growls and roars are signs of aggression. Chemical communication can also be important: bears leave behind their scent in their tracks which allow individuals to keep track of one another in the vast Arctic wilderness.
Polar bears may be a study in contrast. They are not as predictable as cats or dogs. But in this video it shows their motherly and loving nature. A mother bear and her cubs just chilling in the snow – crawling, hugging, cuddling, pressing their fluffy furs against each other, playfully biting each other and not a care in this world. And when you hear the violin in the background, it makes you wonder ‘are they in some kind of performance?’ For you feel entranced by their every move – so fluid, so natural. And as we look at them walking away we feel ‘yes, love do exist in any form’
