Polar bears at play


We had the chance to see some young male polar bears sparring and playing with one another, which was really fun.  I always love to catch animal interactions in the wild.  These bears have nothing to eat and nothing to do while waiting for the ice to freeze so sometimes they play - but not often, as it burns energy.

We could see these bears from the lodge.  It was really amazing to be able to look out the window during breakfast or mid-afternoon and see polar bears!  Needless to say, we were never allowed to leave the lodge unless on the buggy.
