The Arctic is a vast frozen wilderness that covers fifteen million square kilometers. The temperature in the Arctic drops to minus fifty degrees. Only a few mammals can withstand such extreme cold.
Polar bears have the most powerful sense of smell in the animal kingdom. With such a sense, they can smell prey thirty kilometers away. With a good sense of smell, they can smell prey even through the ice.
They are very intelligent animals and here is one of those moments.
