A mother polar bear and her cub make their first journey together onto the sea ice. From BBC’s “Nature’s Great Events.”

    Our naturalists report that the collars are on loosely, plus the bulk of a polar bear’s weight is gained in the torso, not so much in the neck! Mama polar bear has the green light to eat as many seals as she can catch!

    Dear NATHAB:
    I just watched that adorable video of the mother spreading herself out on the ice so as not to fall thru, while her baby followed her. I just adored it!
    However, I noticed a radio collar was attached her neck.
    My question is: what if she eats so many seals this year and gets really fat there? Will the collar begin to be too tight?
    Thanks, Erin
