A resting seal would try to escape to the sea when attacked (where it easily outswim a polar bear), so the attack from the sea is a very efficient hunting strategy. Polar bears are able to dive to a depth of 15 feet and remain submerged for up to two minutes.

When a piece of iceberg ice melts, it makes a fizzing sound called "Bergie Seltzer". This sound is made when the water-ice interface reaches compressed air bubbles trapped in the ice. As this happens, each bubble bursts, making a 'popping' sound. The bubbles contain air trapped in snow layers very early in the history of the ice, that eventually got buried to a given depth (up to several kilometers) and pressurized as it transformed into firn then to glacial ice.Created by: globalquiz.orgice riddles »very hard 35% a cracking noisea cracking noise2258a fizza fizz1705a roara roar378a whispera whisper503 Where is it NOT possible to find a penguin?In Iceland.

(sea route connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans)Roald Amundsen. In a three year journey between 1903 and 1906, Amundsen explored the passage with a crew of no more than six, in the converted 47-ton herring boat Gjøa. Spending winters with ship trapped in ice, he learned from the local Netsilik people about Arctic survival skills that would later prove useful. For example, he learned to use sled dogs and to wear animal skins in lieu of heavy, woolen parkas. Amundsen later led the expeditions to discover the South Pole (1911) and the North Pole (1926).Created by: globalquiz.orggeography of Canada riddles »very hard 34% James CookJames Cook1752Vitus BeringVitus Bering2005Roald AmundsenRoald Amundsen2498No one yetNo one yet1036 Which animal left these tracks?Rabbit.
