What is the polar bear’s primary prey?

A Walruses
B Fish
C Seals

Polar bears eat mostly ringed seals and bearded seals, hunting them most often at openings in the ice where seals come to breathe or rest. Bears rarely catch seals on land or in open water: Although bears are good swimmers, seals are better.

Polar bears can fast for several months during the summer and fall—so they’re hungry come winter. As the ice-free season grows longer and the seal pickings get slimmer, polar bears have started to scavenge human refuse. This has led to more human-bear encounters, which are a hazard for both bears and people.

The correct answer is Seals.
