Fact of the Day: Cold Bear

Polar Bears are believed to have emerged to the world about 150,000 years ago. DNA evidence has confirmed it had evolved from a type of brown bear species which had wandered north. Polar bears have mated with brown bears in recent years, and they're related closely enough to produce healthy offspring.
