MOJO107 Polar Bear Wishes


Hi friends,
I'm so happy to have finally been able to participate in the MOJO Monday Challenge. I haven't had a chance to join in all the challenges I want to play along with :( but I luuuved this week's sketch & I just got my paws on this stamp. Isn't this polar bear sooo cute! Yeah, except that in real life, ummm, not so cuddly! I stamped the scarf twice (cut & colored with Copics) & popped it up with foam dots. Being the teacher that I am... here are a few Polar Bear facts for ya (just in case you're planning on being a Jeopardy contestant :)

1) Polar bear babies weigh about 1 pound at birth but can grow up to weigh up to 1,500 pounds.

2) Despite what many think, a polar bear's fur is not white. Each hair is a clear hollow tube. Polar bears look white because each hollow hair reflects the light. They have black skin.

3) Polar bear fur is oil and water repellent. The hairs don't mat when wet, allowing the polar bear to easily shake free of water and any ice that may form after swimming.

4) Polar bears have wide front paws with slightly webbed toes that help them swim. They paddle with their front feet and steer with their hind feet. Their paw pads have rough surfaces that helps prevent polar bears from slipping on the ice.

5) They have been known to swim over 100 miles at a stretch.
