Try 90 °F colder than your freezer. Every. Single. Winter.

But it's not as cold as your heart if you don't find this picture adorable.

Polar bears can't see or hear for the first month of their lives, somehow making them even more adorable.

Which is cool, because they actually have two different types of fur: long oily hairs and short insulating ones.

So they're sort of waterproof.

They also stay warm via their blubber.

Scientists claim that their blubber makes them really good dancers.

This polar bear just wants to be your friend, but he can't cause he'll rip your body to shreds. =/

They can slow down their metabolism, which allows them to go months without eating.

This helps them get in tip-top shape for summer.

Also, they're basically part duck.

They have webbed toes, which help them swim over 100 miles at a time.

Oh, and only pregnant polar bears hibernate.

That's right. They nap through pregnancy. No big deal.
