Polar bears, native to the Artic region of the world, have been found to be left-handed or, for better words, left-pawed. Just as all humans have a dominant hand, so do animals. Apparently eighty percent of dogs prefer their right paw over their left and studies on cats have concluded that approximately twenty percent preferred their right paw. thirty-nine percent preferred their left paw and fourty-one percent were found to be ambidextrous. Polar bears, sometimes called the northern bear, sea bear or white bear; make use of their dominant left paw particularly when hunting. When stalking prey, the polar bear draws its' right paw across its' black nose so as to cover up the darkest part on it's body and futher camouflage itself. The polar bear then approaches it's prey and uses its' stronger, dominant, left paw to tenderize its' prey before enjoying his meal.
Polar bears are left handed.simple
They are totally left handed
Polar Bears are NOT left handed, nor do they cover their noses with their paws when hunting.
Hundreds of hours of observation has never once documented a case of a Polar Bear consciously covering its nose when hunting, or favouring one paw over another.
They do, however, have a thing for toothpaste.
Polar bears r left handed. [I love polar bears also I am left handed]
Polar bears are left handed I think
According to wikipedia, they say that polar bears are right handed and left footed.
Bears are ambidextrous, but just as humans they tend to prefer either their left or their right paw. Most bolar bears were found to be left-pawed, but I think some might be right-pawed as well.
All the individual animals that have been observed for any tendency to favour one side ,like a paw, have been found to favour one sidedness, just as people favour right or left.
I'm sorry but does it realy matter? Cas its not likely that you will see a polar bear in the corner writing a novel.....
I was reading a pamphlet from the vet clinic today and ironically enough it had the answer to that question. ALL POLAR BEARS HAVE BEEN FOUND TO BE LEFT HANDED. Although I suppose there is a possibility that scientists could have made a mistake.
Gee, you know for a fact that polar bears are left-handed because you're a "siantist"? I would think that a scientist would know how to spell his profession... It's not rokit sians!
They are left handed...
I think that its definetly a remarkable adaptation considering that they are one of th only species on th planet that is almost entirely left handed.... In my eyes that gives them a huge advantage agenst other tipes of bears and all of there unsuspecting victoms.....think about it!
Neither - the have paws not hands
Usually they are left handed.
All bears are ambidextrous
I agree with Mjmmoc8272. I thought it was a trick question, so I figure since they don't have 'hands', they can neither be right or left 'handed'.
Polar bears are left handed I know that becouse I am a siantist
