Polar Bear, "Ursus maritimus"

“Arctic Reflection”
Limited Edition of 195 | Artist Proof 25

The polar bear’s short, talon-like claws are very powerful, enabling them to catch seals and other prey. Their oversized feet are protected by dense insulating fur. The exposed footpads are covered with small bumps called “papillae”, which provide excellent traction on the ice and snow. All these characteristics greatly aid the polar bear to survive in the extremely harsh arctic environment.
