About This Book
Polar bears can smell a seal through three feet of ice, while grizzlies can smell a dead animal ten miles away. But would this sense of smell matter in a fight? What would happen if a polar bear and a grizzly bear fought each other? With this book, readers can study the stats, predict the winner, and then witness the imaginary battle!
This book is packed with amazing and fun facts about where the bears live, how they hunt, and what they eat. Readers will study the bears’ physical features, from teeth to claws, and fill in a checklist about who has the advantage when it comes to size, hunting skills, sense of smell, speed, and more.
Which bear will be the final victor? Find out in this gripping nonfiction read!
