Here’s a little quiz for you! Polar bear paws are remarkably adapted for life in the Arctic environment but can you identify an adaptation their paws have that enables them to survive in such a harsh environment?

Yorkshire Wildlife Park in England welcomes their first polar bear.
Victor, who weighs 1,058 pounds, arrived at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park on Thursday after making the well-planned journey from Rhenen Zoo in Holland by ferry. You can watch Victor’s journey here.
The 15-year-old bear has been so successful in the European Breeding programme that he had to be retired. But now Victor will spend his retirement in a 10 acre environment which mimics the summer tundra. It includes rocky hills, dens and a lake covering an area of 6,500 square metres and reaches 8 metres deep with an island situated in the centre.
Victor is now part of the Park’s Project Polar which aims to house retired polar bears or others that are in need of rescuing from unsuitable conditions.
