Junior tditor Quiz on- BEARS HORTH,THE. POLAR BEAR HMDS PLENTY IN THE WINTER WOODS, FOOD IS HARDER TO PINO — QUESTION: Why do bears have to hibernate? ANSWER: Not all bears hibernate. It is a curious fact that the tiny floating creatures of the sea, or plankton, grow in more abundance in colder water than in warmer. Since fish feed on the plankton, fish are also found in great abundance in far Northern waters. This also means that fish-eating seals are very common in Northern seas. Since the great white polar bear has a special fondness for seal meat, this means again that polar bears have an abundant supply of food close to the floating cakes of ice on which they live. Abundant food is necessary to animals which keep active during the winter. Besides his food, the polar bear has perfect insulation from the cold in his heavy, waterproof coat. The female polar bear, however, does look for a cave or hollow in an iceberg; she wants a protected spot in which to bear and nourish her cubs. In contrast, the black bear, the most common American kind, finds his food supply severely cut down in winter. There are no more insects or berries and most small animals are hibernating. So the wise black bear finds a sheltered nook and curls himself up for a long winter's sleep. (Pam Pettus of Oak Ridge, Tenn., wins a prize for this question. You can win $10 cash plus AP's handsome World Yearbook if your question, mailed on a postcard to Junior Editors in care of this newspaper, is selected for a prize.)
