Polar bears have two layers of fur because it
helps protect them from the cold Arctic weather.
A thick undercoat keeps them warm.
A smooth outer coat keeps water and snow from sticking to
their fur.

Dear Jesse and Bailey--

Thanks for explaining about the polar bear's two layers of fur. I'm guessing that they just have one layer of skin, right? And then some fur is shorter and some is longer to create the two layers. Wish I had two layers of fur on right now--it's very cold here in New Jersey (USA) right now! So I'm curious about how polar bears have helped people to survive in extremely cold places. Do you have any information about this? I'm also wondering if there are a lot of polar bears in the artic or not.
