1. Dinner And A Movie – Polar Bears court each other and so do some humans.
2. Do Not Disturb – Some humans like to mate in privacy and so do Polar Bears.
3. Wanna Have Fun – Polar Bear cubs like to play and so do human babies.
4. Time Out – Polar Bear mothers discipline their cubs when they misbehave and so do some human mothers, with their children.
5. Frozen Wasteland – Polar Bears live in the Arctic Circle and so do humans.
6. Live On The Waves – Humans can spend many months at sea and so can Polar Bears.
7. Sexual Dimorphism – Polar Bears are one of the most sexually dimorphic mammals in the world, this means that there are clear differences between both sexes of the animal. For example; a female Polar Bear is almost half the size of a male Polar Bear and they also have different reproductive organs. Humans could also compare to this as both females and males have clear differences.
8. Handedness – Research has shown that Polar Bears tend to use their right forelimb more often than their left. This idea is called “handedness” and is the theory that one hand, or limb, can perform better than the other. Humans have been found to also choose one hand to perform certain tasks more frequently than the other.
9. Squeaky Clean – Polar Bears wash in water and so do humans.
10. Crustaceans – Polar Bears eat crab and so do humans.
11. Embrace Me – Polar Bears have been known to cuddle when sleeping and so have some humans.
12. Ancient Times – Polar Bears have been depicted in cave paintings and so have humans.
13. Family Fun – Humans have families and so do Polar Bears.
