Do polar bears eat penguins?

Answer

Polar bears do not eat penguins in the wild because the animals are not able to interact. Polar bears live in arctic regions, while penguins are found in the southern hemisphere.

Polar bears primarily feed on ringed seals. Seals cut breathing holes in the ice during the fall and use them all winter, because the animals must surface every five to 15 minutes to breathe. Polar bears wait at the openings until a seal appears. Seals resting on the ice are also at risk. Bears stalk them, pouncing when the prey are within range. Other sources of food for polar bears include geese, eggs and other arctic marine mammals, such as whales and walruses.
