How Tall Is a Polar Bear?

The average polar bear is between 7 1/4 and 8 feet tall. Polar bears are mammals and are found in the Arctic. An adult polar bear can weigh as much as 900 to 1,600 pounds.

Polar bears generally don't interact with people, but as more and more of the Arctic is settled, humans and polar bears are living closer. Polar bears have been known to eat garbage left out, but their normal diet consists of seal. Polar bears can swim for miles and have webbed feet that are also covered in fur, including the bottoms, to protect them from the cold and snow.
