Using their keen sense of smell to detect and locate seals, polar bears take on a tactical approach in stalking seals that bask near breathing holes or on the sea ice edge. Where possible polar bears will use pressure ridges as cover to avoid being detected and for making frequent peeks to keep in check on the seal’s position. Using this tactic a polar bear may occasionally get close enough to charge and catch the seal before it escapes into the water.
