Like all other bears, polar bears also love solitude and feel the need to be left alone. This behavior could be both- typical of a bear to be alone and fewer interaction options in the Arctic region. These solitary creatures can be seen in a group when they are either rearing cubs or breeding. Apart from that, they would be seen roaming around the ice of the snow land alone. They hunt alone and are most active during the first third part of the day. Post that, they tend to relax and sleep or laze around. In fact, if the polar bears are not out hunting for a prey, they could be seen enjoying a warm sleep under the sun.
They tend to sprawl out on icy ground on warm days with their backs on ground and feet in air and during cold winters, they find a temporary den or curl up. You can spot a group of polar bear only on two occasions- a momma bear with her cubs or a pair of polar bears ready to breed. It is believed that polar bears go into deep hibernation during winters but this is not the case. They tend to enter a state of carnivore lethargy where one can see their body temperature dropping substantially.
