Polar Playmates

Churchill Wildlife Management Area, Manitoba, Canada

Polar Playmates

Although normally solitary, when congregating around Churchill in the autumn or around a whale carcass or something large enough to feed multiple bears, they can be relatively sociable with one another. In these larger groups, called sleuths, males play-fight without doing harm. According to one documentary, polar bears can later recognize 'friends' they've met before even after many years apart.
