Polar Bear vs. Grizzly Bear!!!
'ello evry one, I'm Kevin Irwin and here we are to decide who would
win in a battle between these two beauties! Thanks Kevin Irwin, we'll take
it from here. To start off folks, these two bears are the biggest they get
from around the world. Grizzly Bears range in size, but we went straight to the
source to the Kodiak Grizzly subspecies of bears to get the biggest that come by.
Now although it is said both these species of bears can reach a height of 10 feet
while standing on their hind legs, it seems that for the most part, polar bears are
usually given the advantage of being taller in general. That's why polar bears
are usually given the title of largest land carnivore. There is no one particular
agreement of the weight range of these two bears, but some scientist have
said both can get to be 1,500 lbs or even more for the biggest of bears. So what we
will have to do is look at lifestyle to find out just what they are like.
Having particular poorer eyesight for being a predator, the polar bear is a pure
carnivore. These bears living in the Arctic have no choice but to eat the array of
meat source around them. On the other side of things, the grizzly bear actually eats
up to 90% of its diet in plant matter. We only see the bears eat tons of fish when the salmon
run is in affect. But do not get me wrong; grizzly bears can chase down
elk and caribou if they want and make a major kill with these large prey animals.
So as far as hunting skill, the polar bear gets skill points for
hunting more often than the grizzly bear. Grizzly's on the other hand have a huge
shoulder hump that gives them this tremendous arm strength for swing those paws
with force. This is not saying the polar bear is without a swing, but
just for looks and possible measurement of strength of a swipe, it looks like
the grizzly bear has the upper edge on this aspect.
To end it all, I have my winner for one main reason, though input from biologist and other
scientist of animals studies would be great. Because the polar bear has an extremely
thick fur and fat storage to keep it warm in the freezing cold, a fight with another bear
would get it really pumped up. I think an all out fight with a grizzly would
make its body overheat thus, causing it to leave the fight first. This fight is a real close
draw and I was going to leave it like that, but no one likes draws; we have to see
a winner. So just from the simple, yet vital physical property we have a winner.
And the winner is...The Grizzly Bear!!!
