Polar bears hate wasting food, use nature as their fridge

It seems that humans aren’t the only ones who freeze their food for later. Polar bears apparently do it too. A team from Norwegian Polar Institute have spotted how a polar bear solved the dilemma of having opportunistically killed two white-beaked dolphins but only working up enough space in its tummy for one: it stored the second dolphin under the snow, presumably to come back to eat it later.
