Description: Polar bear , Ursus maritimus , which means " sea bear " . Polar bear cubs crossing the tundra in late afternoon light . They are trailing behind their mother which is unusual . The family groups normally keep close together as male bears will hunt and cannibalise the cubs due to the extreme hunger they experience at this time of year , having been fasting for 8 months .
