"Hey, Buddy - Can You Spare a Seal?"

Bagging seals on the polar ice pack is an unpredictable business. When a polar bear is hungry, it can't just walk on down to the market and pick up a bag of seals.

Eating is often a case of "feast or famine". The bears seldom bypass an opportunity to grab an unsuspecting seal, although most attempts at grabbing a meal are unsuccessful. If a bear is on a lucky streak, it may be inclined to share.

To beg food from another bear, a polar bear will approach slowly, circle around the carcass, and then meekly offer a nose-to-nose greeting. Bears who observe proper manners are frequently allowed to share a kill.

This "manners" business seems to work well in the human world as well.
