Description: Polar bear , Ursus maritimus , which means " sea bear " . One of a group of large male Polar Bears make an unexpected seal kill on the ice floes in Hudson Bay . It is unusual for Harp Seals to venture here . As the bears have been fasting for 8 months they are eager to eat this unexpected windfall while they are waiting for Hudson Bay to freeze so that they can hunt through the winter .
