Animals spotted in Polar Regions

penguin and polar bears poalr regions

Some parts of polar regions are always frozen, all year round. These are called ice caps, and they are located in the very centre of the Arctic and Antarctica.

Tundra is land that only defrosts a tiny bit on the top during the summer, but below that stays frozen all the time. That always-frozen layer is called permafrost.

It’s extremely cold in the polar habitats. Arctic tundra can be -12°C to -6°C, and it can get much colder than that further up the ice cap – as low as -50°C! In Antarctica, temperatures can be less than -90°C.

  • Some ways that animals in polar habitats stay warm are:
  • Developing a thick layer of fat that keeps them cosy
  • Having thick fur all over their body and feet
  • Having thick layers of feathers
  • Burrowing into the ground or into snowbanks (like igloos! )
  • Migrating south during the coldest months
  • Hibernating (sleeping) during the coldest months
