The actual scientific name for the polar bear is Ursa Maritimus, which in Latin translates as Sea Bear.  This title's very appropriate considering the sea provides pretty much every meal for the polar bear, with seals predominantly being on the menu.  Knowing this, Norsemen decided to name the bear The Seal’s Dread - a.k.a. The Whale’s Bane, and (my personal fave) The Rider of Icebergs - you got to love a dramatic norse title...

For millennia, our view of the natural world was more akin to Tolkien’s ‘Middle Earth’, rather than Attenborough’s ‘Planet Earth’.  We lived in a world where animals were characterised by the mystical connotations we attributed to them.  We believed certain animals could predict the future, were bringers of good fortune, even riches, and others brought ill, fire, floods, and imminent death..
