    How do polar bears reproduce?

    A:

    Polar bears reproduce via internal fertilization, with one male mating with several females during the mating season, staying with each for their three-day period of fertility. Mating occurs between late winter and early spring, after which gestation lasts anywhere between 195 and 265 days due to the females' ability to delay fetal development. Litter sizes range from one to four cubs but average two cubs per litter.
