Polar Bear Life Cycle?


A polar bear's life cycle starts when two adults mate every other year in mid-summer. The female will then dig a den in the snow and hibernate for nine months until her young are born. These bears typically give birth to between one and four cubs, which are hairless and toothless and about the size of a chipmunk. These cubs will stay with their mother for one to two years.
