#ScienceSunday How smart are polar bears? Polar bears may be just as smart as some apes, according to research scientist Alison Ames. Their success at hunting seals in a dynamic arctic environment is one sign of their brain power. "This is learned behavior and reveals that polar bears are very intelligent animals. They are highly cognitive creatures that top the food chain in polar regions. You have to be very clever to do that. Hunting and trapping a seal is no easy matter.” #polarbears #polarbearsinternational #pbi #saveourseaice
