Among the species of wildlife found in the arctic regions of Canada is the great Polar Bear, the largest predator in the world.

The Polar Bears which are found on the southern shores of Hudson Bay, Canada mostly sleep or at least rest in order to conserve their energy through the summer months and into early winter. They remain in this state until sufficient pack ice has built up in the bay, providing them with a platform from which to hunt for their preferred food - ringed seals and other marine mammals. During this time, a polar bear generally lives off its fat reserves which it will supplement with other wildlife found in it's arctic habitat such as reindeer, fox, muskox, birds, rodents, and at times wild plants.
