Polar Bears Investigate Submarine

Arctic photos taken from the USS HONOLULU (Los Angeles-class fast attack submarine) at the Arctic Circle 280 miles from the North Pole.

Polar Bears have an amazing sense of smell and eyesight. They use these to hunt seals and small whales. If you look at the USS Honolulu, you will see it looks like a giant seal or whale coming out of the ice. So as far as the Polar Bears are concerned, it's a big meal.
