Polar Bear Underwater by deskridge Polar Bear Underwater by deskridge

Polar Bears are the only species of bear that spends most of its time at sea.  In fact, the scientific name for the polar bear is Ursus Maritimus which literally means "Maritime Bear". Generally it rides on sea ice, snapping up seals at the water's edge.  However, these great white bears are also great swimmers and even show aquatic adaptations such as the ability to close its nostrils while submerged.

With winter officially under way, I was in the mood to make a freezing cold artwork that was heavy with blue and white tones.  So I decided that adding polar bear to my series of mammals

Thanks for looking!

There is a zoo in St. Paul called The Como Zoo that has polar bears. In part of the exhibit for the polar bears is a glass wall looking into a pool of water under the waterline. The bears seem to enjoy playing and swimming inside the water and are very fun to watch. Your render really brought back some fun memories!

Wonderful render!
