Kodiak bear fight, bear attackspolar bear fight, bear attacks

Kodiak Bears are the largest subspecies of Brown Bears and are found only on the on Kodiak Island off the Southern coast of Alaska. These Bears grow so much bigger than other Brown Bears and Grizzlies because they are able to feed on washed up whale carcasses as well as an abundance of Pacific Salmon. Brown Bears are some of the most aggressive animals on the planet.

The Polar Bear is the largest Bear on Earth. It is longer but more slender than the Kodiak. The Polar Bear is a social animal but when hungry it will attack and eat just about anything. Polar Bears most commonly attack seals but also will hunt Walrus and have even killed and eaten beluga whales.

This fight pits two massive bears with distinct backgrounds against each other. The Kodiak is a more aggressive species while the Polar Bear is experienced in killing very large prey.The two bears would attack each other head on with the Polar Bear getting the best of the first scrum with its longer arms and neck. The extreme layers of fat the Kodiak has would help it avoid fatal injuries. The Brown Bear, experienced in many territorial fights with other large bears, would retaliate with all of its strength and weight. This charge from the massive Kodiak would knock the Polar bear to the ground and it would never get back up.  

 

Comments

The Kodiak bear founded Kodax and thus has more capital with his international presence. Now the Polar bear did once kill Rudolph and have to help Santa when I was younger which was very much appreciated. I did receive the Atari system that year. None the less, I'm going with Kodiak Bear because Cash Rules Everything Around Me (CREAM)

Kodiak bears would murder a polar bear Kodiaks are way bigger and way more pounds also since it has more fat it can take more injuries.

the kodiak simply looks bad a** ! 
unfortunately in this pic the polar bear looks like pakistan.

Polar Bears are the largest bears on earth, Kodiaks are the largest subspecies of Brown Bear. End of story. 
 
As for the fight, the weight difference is not huge, both animals could kill each other. This might be the only fight on this site that would last more than 30 seconds. To the polar bear it would just be like fighting another polar bear, vice versa. The polar bear would have an advantage in its home turf, blending in with the snow.

Polar wins !! Kodiak's claws may look big but they are quite blunt , also Polar bears have the molars of a carnivore Kodiaks have the molars of an omnivore , so the big white guy has a more powerful bite.

Polar bears are the largest land carnivores on earth, they way 11oo pounds. It would be a close fight but polar WINS. End.

The Polar bear's neck is so strong it can drag a 4000lb Walrus carcass across a small distance of snow. It can also kill virtually any species in its native habitat. While the same can be said of the Kodiak, its diet, which consists mostly of shrubs, berries, plants and miscellaneous like tree bark, makes its jaw and teeth less dangerous than the white bear. The Polar's long neck also gives it an advantage in reaching out and biting the Kodiak.

Polar bears are longer longer and skinnier then kodiac.Kodiacs have thicker necks,thicker arms and their back muscles are alot bigger then the polar.I know polars are slightly larger but they are not as strong as a kodiac.Kodiac will win the fight.
Posted @ Tuesday, April 14, 2009 5:52 PM by michael martinez
Everyone here is talking about the physical features of both bears, including me in my earlier comment, but think about it, the kodiac mainly eats plants. While the polar bear is strictly carnivore. Kodiac may have thicker legs and arms, but will it realy be so good at using them?
Posted @ Tuesday, April 21, 2009 2:50 PM by Bobcat
The Kodiak bear has more body muscle, that's what the hump on it's back is, it's muscle. And for your information, the kodiak bear doesn't mainly eat plants, they will take on a full grown moose with their paws, that's my two cents for you!
Posted @ Thursday, May 14, 2009 6:45 PM by Kenny
Oh yeah I almost forgot, Kodiak Bears are the most common bear to attack people, of course it's gonna know how to use those arms bobcat.
Posted @ Wednesday, May 27, 2009 5:58 PM by Kenny
Polar Bears win because unlike Kodiak, Polar Bear is 100% carnivore! So 100% hunter! A powerful hunter! While the Kodiak is omnivorous, it does not hunt large prey such as the polar bear. Scientists have seen polar bears kill beluga whales that breathing on the surface of the water in a ice hole! Can you imagine? A polar bear, who happens to kill a whale of a tonne? wow!

You forgot a couple things. Polar bears are left handed, which gives them an advantage since the strike coming from the toher side is unexpected. 
 
 
 
Second, polar bears are the mascot of Bowdoin College, and therefore smarter, and can use thier superior intelligence to win the fight.

Polar Bear, of course!! BTW-they weigh in at way more than 1100 lbs, try adding several hundred more pounds to that. There have been some weighing more than 2400 lbs in captivity, so in th ewild, they have that potential if they find food source to get to that massive weight. Fighting-wise, I still will go with the Polar Bear.
Posted @ Thursday, July 23, 2009 10:17 PM by Attila
ok, i'll start of by saying that most sources list the kodiak to be longer. Im not sure if that is right as they average less weight but are more stout with wider heads ect. the largest recorded kodiaks were much larger than the largest recorded polar. people seem to think that what it eats has any efect on the outcome of the fight, need i remind you that one of the biggest killers of humans is the hippo which is a veg. In all actuality, sometimes kodiaks and polars encounter each other in the wild and polar bears will either retreat or be killed by the kodiaks(yes kodiaks have been known to kill polar bears). kodiaks are much more agressive and are better suited for a fight with a larger head, stronger jaws ect. while the polar bear is a carnivore the kodiak will at times actively hunt and run down large game. strangely enough there have even been a case or a few cases of male kodiaks mating with polar bears resulting in a hybrid polar bear with larger head so maybe thats the one to put your money on.

its true polar bears can kill a buluga whale in one hit to th skull if a polar bear got a good hit in with all its might it would kill the kodiak in one hit aswell polar bear all the way they r the most dangerus predators living today on land unlike the brown bear secies that mainly eats berries and other plants taking meat seldomly they r omnivourus but there diet is mostly plant based
Posted @ Wednesday, August 19, 2009 6:26 AM by billy bob joe
Its hard to say which would win. Again its about 50/50. Who says they'd even fight to the death? Its probably about the same as fighting another one of their species, so its equal.
Posted @ Monday, September 14, 2009 5:58 PM by Dark_Wolfxoxo
Ok the kodiak bear is the largest land carnivore beacuse it set the record of 1782lbs. the largest polar bear was 1200lbs. the kodiak bear stands 13ft and the polar bear stands 11ft. the kodiak bear wins the fight every time.
Posted @ Sunday, September 27, 2009 9:12 AM by grizzly kid
Not correct sizes there Grizzly kid, the largest bears were polar bear @ 2,200 lbs and a kodiak @ a little over 2,500 lbs. 
 
The largest wild Kodiak bear on record weighed over 1,100 kilograms (2,400 lb).[10] Bears raised in zoos are often heavier than wild bears because of regular feeding and limited movement. In zoos, bears may weigh up to 900 kilograms (2,000 lb), one example being "Goliath" from New Jersey's Space Farms Zoo and Museum. Another example is Kodiak brown bear "Barbucha" at the zoo in Duisburg, who weighs 1000 kilograms (2200 lb).[15] Size seems related to food availability, and subspecies distinctions is more related to nutrition than geographical location.[16]  
 
 
 
Despite their size, some brown bears have been clocked at speeds in excess of 64 km/h (40 mph).[17]  
 
 
 
One of the subspecies of the brown bear, the Kodiak bear, which is native to Kodiak Island, matches the polar bear as the largest member of the bear family,[2] and as the largest land predator.[3] The hides and skulls of the two species are comparable in size, thus making morphological comparisons difficult as it is often difficult to weigh wild specimens.[3]

OK folks, this is the way it is. I have hunted these critters for years and can tell you that most of the comments on here are trash. When we talk about 10 foot bears....thats the square of the bear...meaning you measure the hide from claw to claw and from nose to tail, then you figure the average. The very largest Kodiak bears can go in access of 1400 lbs..........very very few of these bear actually make 1400 lbs. A Kodiak brown bear has never and will never reach 2000 lbs and neither will a polar bear. All these silly reports about 2000 lb bears are nothing but hyper exaggerated trash. Despite being built differently both bears square and weigh about the same. I believe the two largest Kodiak bears killed on Kodiak were under 1500 lbs (estimated by experienced hunters)and squared just over 11 feet. An 11 foot brown bear from Kodiak island, the pennisula or Kamchatka (Russian brown bear) are extremely rare. When bears are measured for scoring purposes the skull is measured....not the hide because people can cheat by stretching them. Kodiak Brown bears are not necessarily aggressive, they primarily eat fish, vegetation and an occasional black tail sitka dear. (not native to Kodiak island) Brown bears and grizzly's are the same bears....the difference in size is due to genetics, amount of food and hybernation times. The further into the interior you go, the smaller and more aggressive the bears can be because food is more difficult to come by. If a bear is shot on the south side of the Alaska range it will be considered a Brown Bear.....if it is shot on the North Side....it will be considered a Grizzly. So, location of the bear can also be a deciding factor on what type of bear it is considered to be. Now, the Polar bear is typically a more aggressive bear and anything that moves in the arctic is food to them. They are fearless and can be very aggressive, however that is not necessarily the deciding factor on who would win. A while back I talked to a friend that watched a young, but considerably bigger polar bear get run off a kill by an interior sow grizzly with cubs! (yes folks, their ranges do cross) Very, very rarely do the large brown bears and polar bear cross paths.....and when they do, they are just like humans...some bears are aggressive by nature and some are not. Who would win in this fight......I would say the polar bear probably has an advantage but wouldn't necessarily put any money on it. The polar bear has evolved from the brown bear and probably has evolved into a more efficient hunter whereas the brown bears are typically sloppy killers. But, the bears typically hunt different types of game for food. Both bears are absolutely increadible animals.

By the way.........one of the absolute largest Kodiak brown bears in history was in the zoo in Bismarck North Dakota....his name was Clyde, he was brought to North Dakota back in 1966.....He weighed just over 2100 lbs when he died, but all he did was lay around and eat donuts. They dont get near that heavy in the wild.
Posted @ Monday, October 12, 2009 12:06 AM by Fred
Actually Fred, the largest was over 2,500 lbs, and the largest in the wild was approx. 2,100 lbs-polar bear that stood 11 ft tall.
Posted @ Tuesday, October 13, 2009 7:09 PM by ATTILA
My vote is for the polar bear, although its a good match. The picture of th epolar bear is very deceptive, they have thick limbs with which to drag huge prey onto the ice, the picture makes it look thin. Look at the youtube vid or on animal planet of the australian lady who was attacked due to her own stupidity at a zoo by a polar bear, you can see how massive its arms are-they are the size of the woman's body and she wasn't "skinney minney".
Posted @ Thursday, October 15, 2009 7:20 PM by ATTILA
Without a doubt the polar bear, it is far more agressive, and usually weighs more on average, they hunt bigger and heavier, and more powerful animals than any other land mammal and this will most likely end up very bad for the less agressive and less experienced kodiak bear.
Posted @ Sunday, November 01, 2009 2:14 PM by Wing
I dont think this would be a contest. Polar Bears are more timid than grizzlies and have proven to be chased off prey by grizzlies.Besides they dont want to get their pretty white coats dirty
Posted @ Wednesday, December 09, 2009 1:16 PM by Go Blue
I agree with you 100%, Wing, the polar bear is far more aggressive than is the Kodiak bear, hunts larger prey so is probably stronger, and is a born killer. Also to be noted is, they do not run from Grizzly's-how the hell do you think the hybrid Grolar/Pizzly bears came to be in existance?
Posted @ Wednesday, December 09, 2009 1:43 PM by ATTILA
Polar bears are more curious not more aggresive.Let it be know that more than likely that the Grolar Bear is a cross between a MALE grizzly and a FEmale polar bear.
Posted @ Wednesday, December 09, 2009 3:02 PM by
Polar bears are more curious AND more aggressive. Let it also be noted that male polar bears mate with Grizzly's are Pizzly bears which has happened frequently as both female and male Grizzlys are moving to more northern territories where encounters are more frequent.
Posted @ Wednesday, December 09, 2009 7:27 PM by ATTILA
I dont feel that the polar bear is more aggressive.They happen to be better opprotunists than grizzlies.They have no choice in the Frozen Tundra. That is why people are on their menu. A male Kodiak without question is the strongest North American carnavoir. Who gives a rip about the tallest bear.Tell that to football players.
Posted @ Monday, December 14, 2009 6:14 PM by Go Blue
This is not like the Siberian tiger vs grizzly face-off, where one animal obviously overpowers the other. 
 
This match could go either way. I would say that the polar bear and the Kodiak bear are pretty much evenly matched. I would not place a bet.
Posted @ Saturday, December 26, 2009 7:59 AM by Toby Ross
Chr1$t...The Kodiak bear would win probably 50% of the time. This is a fairly even match. Much unlike the Siberian tiger vs American grizzly match.
Posted @ Saturday, December 26, 2009 9:57 AM by Toby Ross
Chr1$t claims that Bengal tigers are hunting and eatting Asian elephants, Siberian tigers are hunting and eatting Asian brown bears, and American grizzly bears are choking to death on penguins.
Posted @ Thursday, December 31, 2009 5:42 AM by Toby Ross
polars are bigger and stronger it's neck is long and strong enough to reach and bite the kodiak bear's stomach
Posted @ Thursday, December 31, 2009 11:51 PM by man knee
Kodiak bears and polar bears are evenly matched. In my opinion, the top 5 predators ( in a face-off ) are: 
 
#1- polar bear and brown bears. 
 
#2- tiger. 
 
#3- lion. 
 
#4- jaguar. 
 
#5- leopard and puma. 
 
I do not consider the American black bear to be a predator and certainly not the gorilla. But, in a face-off, I would place both together as equals between lion and jaguar.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
#5- leopard and puma.

FIRST OF ALL THEY ARE BOTH HUGE BEARS IT JUST DEPENDS ON WHO STRIEKS FIRST AND WHO CAN HAVE THE MOST ENDURANCE AND JUST MY OPINION THE POLAR BEARS ATTACKS BELUGA WHALES KODIAK ONLY EATS THE CARCASS!
Posted @ Monday, January 04, 2010 1:34 PM by BRUCE
It's very close to call, but I think th ePolar Bear has the edge here. On an interesting note, however, I wonder just what the offspring of the Polar and Grizzly called "Grolar" and "Pizzly" bears are like-what are their temperments like and so forth. I think its an awesome combination-anyone have an opinion about this hybrid that is becomming more abundant as Grizzly's are moving north causing this phenomenon to happen more frequently?
Posted @ Monday, January 04, 2010 5:12 PM by ATTILA
this is wrong info, a kodiak can get just as big as a polar bear. Infact due climat change the largest kodiaks are probably bigger then the largest polar bears. 
 
Polar bear: 770-1500 lb 
 
Kodiak bear: 800-1500 lb
Posted @ Tuesday, January 05, 2010 10:48 AM by Mr animalia
I am not going to argue over who is the biggest. A 1400 Kodiak bear would be stronger than a 1400 pound polar bear. Pound for pound, my bet is on Ursus arctos.
Posted @ Sunday, January 10, 2010 8:14 AM by Toby Ross
Hey ATTILA remeber me, this one is for you im lettin it all out! In zoos the kodiak bear on average is bigger then polar bears in zoos. And in the wild the same thing happens on average the kodiaks are larger then the polar bears and the largest kodiak is larger then the largest polar bear and not just because of its fat it has pound for pound much more muscle then the polar bear. Ya so a polar bear can drag a 4000lbs walrus and can kill a beluga whale but thats beacuse thats where it lives! If brown bears lived in the artic to then they would be doing the same thing plus they would be dominating all the polar bears. if u put a polar bear in the brown bears environment then i bet it wouldnt last a week for several reasons! 1. it would be to hot. 2. its endurence sucks so it couldnt chase down any prey. 3. its fur would stand out. 4. it would be gettin dominated by all the brown bears. You figure out the rest. A brown bear would claw the polar bears face off before the polar bear could land a hit. Do you want to give up yet or do u want some more! >:(
Posted @ Sunday, January 10, 2010 8:49 PM by grizzly kid
Grizzly kid-you've made errors on a few points as I see having studied bears for years-first one is the size factor, the largest bear was a polar bear at over 2,200 lbs. Second mistake you quoted was on stamina-polar bears have immense stamina-they swim up to 60 miles and work harder to get their food than do other bears and are true carnivores-the others are recognized as being omnivores, so the polar bear is the better killer. 
 
Though a polar bear holds the world record for largest land carnivore, the Kodiak bear holds a close second place. Kodiak bears are believed to be a sub-species of Brown bear (Ursus arctos) found living exclusively on Kodiak Island, Alaska. The average size of a Kodiak bear is usually not as big as the average polar bear, but because of the abundant food supply they can get pretty big. The largest Kodiak bear on record was a male taken in 1894 that weighed 1,656lbs/745kgs. (see the Alaska Dept. of Fish & Game for more information on Brown Bears.) 
 
http://74.125.95.132/search?q=cache:Gg3SlZHPgBgJwww.extremescience.com/PolarBear.htm+largest+polar+bear+ever&cd=4&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us 
 
 
 
III. Physical Characteristics. 
 
A. Size.  
 
 
 
1. Polar bears are the largest land carnivore.  
 
 
 
2. Male polar bears (boars) grow two to three times the size of female polar bears (sows). Boars weigh about 350 to more than 650 kg (772-1,433 lb.) and are about 2.5 to 3 m (8.2-9.8 ft.) long (Stirling, 1988).  
 
 
 
3. Sows weigh about 150 to 250 kg (331-551 lb.) and are about 2 to 2.5 m (6.6-8.2 ft.) long. Pregnant females can weigh as much as 500 kg (1,102 lb.) (Stirling, 1988).  
 
 
 
4. The largest polar bear ever recorded was a male weighing 1,002 kg (2,209 lb.) and measuring 3.7 m (12 ft.) long (Domico, 1988 
 
http://74.125.95.132/search?q=cache:68WgdAYZtgQJwww.seaworld.org/infobooks/PolarBears/pbphysical.html+largest+polar+bear+ever&cd=3&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us 
 
It is a close call, but the polar bear is generally considered the largest bear on Earth. A close second is the brown bear, specifically the Kodiak bear. The Kodiak is a subspecies of the brown bear native to Alaska. 
 
 
 
The consensus among experts is that the polar bear is the largest, but some believe the Kodiak bear to be larger. Part of the dissension comes from the vagueness of the word "largest." The answer really depends on how "largest" is defined - Heaviest? Longest? Largest ever recorded? 
 
 
 
The following data, taken from Gary Brown's Great Bear Almanac (New York, 1993), compares the average measurements of the polar and brown bear.

I agree with you on the first 2 but not the last 2. The lion is bigger and stronger then the tiger and does win in fights 7 out of 10.
Posted @ Wednesday, January 13, 2010 8:42 PM by lion man/grizzly kid
You could very well be right about the lion defeating the tiger. I have never felt too strongly either way. If not for the more powerful bears, it would be these two cats up for apex land predator. When it comes to lion vs tiger, I am just guessing.  
 
The reason some bear species grow so large is the fact that they are very aggresiive in fighting for females, for territory, or for feeding ground. Damon claims that the big cats have more testosterone. Do you agree?
Posted @ Thursday, January 14, 2010 5:22 AM by Toby Ross
I would say that today, the Kodiak bear would win. Because of global warming, polar bears wouldn't be as big as they used to, so a charge from the Kodiak bear would seriously injure it. A few more swipes from the Kodiak bear's claw, and the Polar bear is dead. 
 
However, go back a few hundred years. There isn't as much pollution, and the polar bear is still similar in size to the Kodiak bear. Now, a charge wouldn't do so much anymore. The polar bear would still have enough power to charge right back, and since they are more agile, the Polar bear wins instead. However, whether the battle takes place today or half a century ago, I'm pretty sure the looser would still put up a very good fight. 
 
I doubt that any other bear would do so well against either bear because the Polar bear and the Kodiak bear are so incredibly large. Even other brown bears.
Posted @ Thursday, January 14, 2010 5:06 PM by TriceratopsH
Actually, grizzlykid the lion is not bigger nor stronger than a tiger-the tiger is reputed as being the largest cat on earth-excluding of course the liger which was created by the Germans over half a century ago, it doesn't grow in the wild and cannot reproduce, therefore it doesn't count. The lion stands taller than the tiger, however the tiger is longer than the lion and also has heavier recorded weights for records as well as average weights. Strength has been hotly debated, but again the tiger is said to be the stronger and as far as a fight goes, well there have been recorded winners on both lion and tigers against one another and is a hotbed for controversy as to a clearcut winner, so you cannot say that one will win x amount of times when this hotly debated issue rages on between studied individuals on both sides. 
 
Toby Ross, just a fact for you-did yiou know the animal with more testosterone than any other animal on the face of the earth or sea is a bull shark? It isn't even close-there is nothing that even comes close to having as much, and it has a testosterone count of 900! Thats why they kill more people than do lions per year-Florida is the shark capital of the world and the sharks doing that are bull sharks.

Very funny... I change my mind. I think today,, it'll be 51/49, 51 for the polar bear because it has longer reach, and it's actually pretty tough.
Posted @ Monday, January 25, 2010 8:19 PM by TriceratopsH
TriceratopsH, it would be a really good fight but the kodiak bear is stronger and its fat would help absorb the polar bears blows. It doesnt really matter who has the longer reach, the bears would be attacking each other not waiting for the other one to hit it.
Posted @ Thursday, January 28, 2010 8:01 PM by lion man
This is a close one. I would lean towards the polar just because it is a carnivore and therefore it depends on hunting other animals (large or small) to survive.
Posted @ Friday, January 29, 2010 2:31 PM by TheTruth
I'm inclined to agree with you TheTruch based on that reason and that its also larger on average even though its close, plus, the Polar bear has the largest paws of any carnivore and the largest of all the bears, so their swipe delivers more surface area damage.
Posted @ Friday, January 29, 2010 8:25 PM by ATTILA
Attila, the kodiak bears fat would be able to absorb the polar bears blows more than the polar bears fat would absorb the kodiaks blow (which is stronger). In this fight the size of the paws are pretty even length and width wise. The kodiak bear has incredibly long and sharpe claws the longest of any carnivore today and the kodiak bear would be able to deliver the killing blow before the polar bear or the killing bite. But overall this fight would be a really good and even battle but i would say that the kodiak bear would have more kills then the polar bear.

hey!dis is not so easy a movie as u have made it.u should know that polar bears,on an average,weigh upto 800kg but kodiak bears only upto 600 kg.Also,d conditions in which polars live makes them damn tough.u said that kodiaks hav a blubber but idiots!blubber of a polar is way thicker due to the extreme temperatures.Every expert suggests that polar bear is d strongest flesh eater in the world but just aggression on the part of a Kodiak is not gonna win it any battle.Polars kill even walruses n hav a much stronger bite....so it will just fuck the kodiak!!
Posted @ Monday, February 01, 2010 5:26 AM by Hemant
one more thing.....experts say that polars alwaz fight till death but d kodiaks just run away.
Posted @ Monday, February 01, 2010 5:45 AM by Hemant
Hemant, you sound like an idiot! Kodiak bears dont average 600lbs. Heres a piece of info from wiki.[6] Mature males (larger than sub-prime males) average 477–534 kg (1,051–1,177 lb) over the course of the year,[7]. As for polar bears today will average 600lbs- 800lbs for males because of global warming. If there wasnt any global warming, scientists think that there weight would be alittle more like the kodiaks. And you say that just because a polar bear eats walrus makes it the strongest carnivore?! A kodiak can break the neck of a 1800lbs moose with one smack from its paw, and kill a bison the same way! If a kodiak bear saw a walrus it would make a meal of it to. Polar bears also get KILLED by walrus. As for polar bears and kodiak bears fighting, polar bears dont fight to the death and kodiaks dont run away, the submisive bear will back down from the dominant bear. That doesnt just mean the bigger kodiak will always win cuz even the smaller kodiaks can be more aggressive then the larger bears. Heres a video of brown bears chasing polar bears away from a whale carcus.

Ursus arctos middendorffi, the Kodiak bear is the ultimate carnivore and the apex land predator. Although the polar bear would indeed be his greatest challenge, the biggest of the brown bears would likely be victorious. Lions and tigers would be no challenge at all.
Posted @ Friday, February 05, 2010 10:08 PM by Toby Ross
A polar bear would beat a kodiak, they are more muscular and better hunters and fighters. they are also better armerd. this is a close battle but the polar bear wins 6 out of 10. and a tiger and lion can put up a great fight, cats are agile, fast and muscular while bears are heavy, bulkier and high on stamina. 
 
obviously a kodiak is far more supreme then a grizzly.
Posted @ Saturday, February 06, 2010 6:38 PM by mr animalia
Actually, the Kodiak is more muscular. Open your eyes. Also, grizzly bears, which are smaller relatives of the Kodiak, are sometimes observed chasing polar bears away from garbage heaps. Ursus arctos is the apex carnivore.
Posted @ Saturday, February 06, 2010 8:42 PM by Toby Ross
That is sssoo true!! It has been seen, recorded and filmed that grizzlys chase polar bears away from food sources and there territory. A polar bear would be foolish to stay around and pick a fight with a grizzly, its just another word for suicide or instant death!!

the polar bear ran from a grizzly because it didn't want to pich a fight without a reason, if the polar bear really wanted to it could have easily killed a grizzly. And just because one animal is bulkier doesn't make them more muscular. polar bears have more muscle while a brown bears have more body fat. Polar bears kill bengula whales and walrus. To be fair I cannot see a kodiak doing that. 
 
And toby ross stop saying grizzly is the ultimate predator. you sound like an idiot. A grizzly almost never hunts, how can you even call it a predator? a polar bear, lion or tiger those are true predators.

Actually mr animalia, a kodiak bear hunts 60% of the time and it would kill a beluga whale and walrus with ease. A kodiak bear can do anything a polar bear can do, if not better. After all, polar bears evolution starts with brown bears. The average kodiak bear kills the average polar bear more.
Posted @ Sunday, February 07, 2010 7:36 PM by lion man
The polar bear is built very much like the American black bear. Although he is incredibly strong, he does not have the brute strength of Ursus arctos. The Kodiak would win, as long as he does not allow himself to be pulled into the water.
Posted @ Monday, February 08, 2010 5:43 AM by Toby Ross
MrAnimalia. Being a predator does not make one stronger. The rhinoceras is a herbavore, but very strong. In fact, being a predator, an animal needs stealth and speed. To have these things, some strength must be sacrificed. A grizzly has a big broad frame because he does not have to slink quietly through the forest. A grizzly does not have to leap upon a deer or a cow. Ursus arctos is built like a bull. Pure brute strength. Being an omnivorous carnivore is the reason that a grizzly is so much stronger than a lion or a tiger.
Posted @ Monday, February 08, 2010 5:53 AM by Toby Ross
The polar bear is the world's largest terestrial carnivore, although he is, by some naturalists, considered aquatic. But, size is not everything. Ursus arctos is a more muscular and more powerful bear. The size difference is very slim. The coastal grizzly and the Kamchatka brown bears are in the same size range as the famous Kodiak. Any of these big brown bears are more than a match for a polar bear.
Posted @ Monday, February 08, 2010 12:20 PM by Toby Ross
A polar bear is a warrior and fighter, a kodiak is not. A polar bear is muscular while the kodiak is bulkier and and has more body fat. A polar bear could easily kill a coastal grizzly, those only average 660 compared to 1000 pounds of polar bear. A kamchatka does stand a chance but will still lose. And the main reason why a rhino is so strong is because of its weight. if a tiger and rhino where equal in weight tht rhino would have now power advantage. pound for pound carnivores are stronger then vegie eaters. that is why a tiger can kill a deer, cow or brown bear at equal size so easily because it is a fierce predator. 
 
And a Kodiak cannot kill a walrus, unlike polar bear, lion and tiger its tooth and claws are not shark enough to do much damage to the walrusses 3 inch hide while the walrusses tusks can do a lot of samage to the bear. The polar bear is stronger and better armed, it could beat a kodiak bear. 
 
The tiger is the true apex carnivore, brown bears are so fat and lazy.

When a black bear wonders into grizzly country, he sometimes becomes a grizzly bear dinner. When a polar bear wonders too far South, he ends up as grizzly bear dinner. I'm not making this up. It is on the links I just posted. Brown bears regularly kill and eat polar bears.

a polar bear would beat a kodiak 7 out of 10
Posted @ Tuesday, February 09, 2010 6:48 PM by mr animalia
Polar bears are sometimes killed by American polar bears and by Asiatic brown bears. Both belong to the group "Ursus arctos". Therefore, it stands to reason that Ursus arctos middendorffi, The Kodiak bear, could easily kill a polar bear.

The kodiak will have the advantage under my knowledge - today Kodiaks are equally large or even larger than polar bears 
 
 
 
But the kodiak is Bulkier, thicker and more durable to injurie 
 
The Kodiak also has more stanima as polar bears get excausted quickly even in their natural surroundings 
 
The kodiak is more fierce, the polar bear ios shy that dousn't risk injury toward other predators 
 
 
 
Kodiak 55% of the time
Posted @ Wednesday, July 14, 2010 2:25 PM by Zackerdy
The Kodiak bear is of the family Ursus arctos, the ultimate carnivore. Polar bears have often been seen running from grizzlys, the smaller cousins of the Kodiak.  
 
But polar bears are bigger and they do not tire easily.
Posted @ Wednesday, July 14, 2010 6:01 PM by Toby
Toby, polar bears overheat quickly even in natural surroundings - unlike other bears. That is why males can only fight for a limited amount of time before excausting. 
 
A polar bear runs for a grizzly because it is less aggressive, if a Polar bear was cornered it will have little trouble likking the ursus actros half his size. 
 
But a kodiak will probably win 
 
And brown bear ain't the ultimate carnivores - 'cause they aren't even carnivores. they are onmivores.

Zack...You do not understand. 
 
I said that Ursus arctos is the ultimate carnivore. I never said that he is a true predator. When you true predators go extinct, the bears will find food and survive. 
 
By the way Zack...the orca, sharks, crocodiles, and the octopus you love so dearly are NOT carnivores of the order carivora.  
 
*The grizzly ( Ursus arctos ) is the apex carnivore. A big brown bear will take a fresh kill from a hungry tiger.
Posted @ Thursday, July 15, 2010 2:40 PM by Toby
The Kodiak bear or any other large brown bear, such as a coastal grizzly or a Kamchatka bear could kill a big polar bear. However, no other carnivore lives that can do this.

OK,toby, if you think allexperts is so accurate, I actually kind of agree. But first of all, your link doesn't actually work, but I'm guessing that it's something about how whenever a polar bear encounters a grizzly it goes like "oh noeys" and runs away, am I correct? I've seen them. But remember, this is a fight where NEITHER OF THEM CAN RUN AWAY, so that screws everything up.

To zack: I hope by "impressive" you don't mean powerful, because then there would be something wrong about putting wolverines in front of tigers, and not including any bears at all.  
 
 
 
 
 
To Zackerdy: 
 
 
 
Are you sure a ratel can defeat a Jaguar/monstrous brown/polar bear? I would think they would have a hard penetrating through a bear's skin, fat and rock-hard muscle at all, let alone kill it. Also, you shouldn't compare entirely aquatic animals such as sharks and orcas (polar bears are OK because they live on land half the time) because the water helps weaken gravity so animals can get bigger, that's why most whales die from their own weight when they beach. 
 
A large bear (polar, kodiak, etc. bear) could kill any of the other land animals, they are just so large and their powerful arms will crush their skull instantly, even the hyena, and the bear WILL have a chance to strike because they are MUCH more agile than they look.
Posted @ Saturday, July 31, 2010 7:50 PM by Hugh
No, I do not believe everything I read at all-experts and even less at wiki. But, yes I watched a grizzly chase away a polar bear on a documentary. I believe that a coastal grizzly, Kamchatka bear, or a Kodiak could kill a polar bear in a face-off. Ussuri brown bears are big enough too. 
 
If the brown bear is even close to polar bear size, he is likely to have the strength advantage. His lifestyle of digging in hard ground and turning over huge boulders and fallen trees has caused the grizzly ( brownie ) to develope that hump of muscle on his shoulders which makes the brown bear pound for pound the stronger bear.
Posted @ Saturday, July 31, 2010 8:51 PM by Toby
The polar bear evolved roughly 200,000 years ago when a group of Kamchatka brown bears were stranded and seperated from others of their kind. They evolved into Ursus maritimus tyrannus, which is called the giant polar bear. But, this biggest of bears was actually much more like a giant grizzly than a polar bear. The modern polar bear appeared roughly 100,000 years ago. He is more stream-lined for an aquatic lifestyle. 
 
Ursus maritimus tyrannus was 6 feet shoulder height and weighed well over a ton. I do not know how tall he might have been standing upright. But, he was 12 feet long. 
 
The brown bears are the polar bears closest relatives.
Posted @ Saturday, July 31, 2010 9:00 PM by Toby
I don't know what Ursus maritimus tyrannus has to do with anything, but I certainly know about it. Of course it's more powerful than either animal, it's larger! In my point of view, it's the strongest predatory mammal to live on land. After all, bears have a natural adavantage over other predators in terms of pound-for-pound strength, even more so than the great cats, that's unmistakable. Being larger than all meat-eating land mammals but Megistotherium helps, too. (Maybe there's more, but they probably aren't pound-for-pound as strong as bears.) 
 
I'm pretty sure your information about Ursus maritimus tyrannus is mostly correct, toby, although I think that ursus maritimus tyrannus was more along the lines of 1.9 meters tall and 3.8 meters long, but close enough!
Posted @ Monday, August 02, 2010 12:48 PM by Hugh
About your first answer, toby, this Jonathan guy says he's seen animals IN REAL LIFE, not just in some half-imaginary documentary.
Posted @ Monday, August 02, 2010 12:49 PM by Hugh
I don't know who Jonathan is, but I don't live in brown bear/polar bear country. So, I go with nature documentaries. 
 
My point with the giant polar bear was: It was as much brown bear as it was polar bear. Intermidiate. The polar bear, in adapting to a semi-aquatic lifestyle, lost much of it's brute strength. 
 
If you venture over to Siberian Tiger vs Grizzly, our friends Zink, Zack, and Damon believe that the big cats were stronger than a brown bear.
Posted @ Monday, August 02, 2010 12:58 PM by Toby
Maybe the polar bear GAINED strength when it evolved from grizzlies. 
 
And now that we think about it, we shouldn't be arguing about animals we've never seen fight before. 
 
These zink, Zack and Damon people don't seem very well informed, do they? No dissagreeing on that. Wild cats ARE strong, that's undeniable, 
 
but when compared with bears, they're like house cats.

1. I live in Norway and know for a fact there are many Polar Bears weighing over 800 kg (1700 pounds), since I work as a scientist flying around in helicopter and take samples of these animals. The largest we have found while I have been a part of the team the past 4 years was probably over 900 kg (2000 pounds). 
 
 
 
2. About a fight between a Kodiak and a Polar. I see lots of strange arguments on the top here. One actually claim Polar Bears are left handed, and therefor could win because of the surprice (!!!??). Well, no comment to that one... 
 
A big issue is tha Polar Bears problemwith overheating. It can smash the scull in on a large bull Moose, but it would overheat if it should fight another bear for 5 minutes. Because its not easy to kill a Bear. It would most often last for some time before one really dies. 
 
3. I see an argument that Polar Bears are hunters and killers and therefor it would win. Well, its not a very valid argument, since Polar Bears are not used to hunt and fight other land animals other than other Polar bears. Same as Kodiak Bears. Becides, the Polar are very sceptic to other land animals. Its unknown to them.  
 
So it has not any advantage there. 
 
4. The head and scull of the Kodiak are much more massive than the Polar Bears. It can take more beating there. 
 
5. There are actually a number of accounts of Grizzlies meeting polar Bears in northern Alaska during summer. The much more aggressive Grizzly often chase away the Polar. But that does NOT mean it would win an actually fight.  
 
 
 
To conclude about what I know and believe, a fight between a 1500 pound Kodiak and a 1600 pound polar Bear could go both ways of course.  
 
But if it drags out, the kodiak would probably win due to the Polar Bears overheating.  
 
 
 
I see there is a discussion of Tigers and Brown Bears. A Siberian Tiger has no chance on either one in a fight. Russian scientists I work with have the same view as us and are very clear that it would be a disaster for a Tiger to fight an adult Brown or Polar Bear. The Polar would have finished the game long before overheating. Brown Bears often go after Polar Bears and take over their kills by intimidating the Siberian Tigers with its size. And those Bears sharing the same habitat as the Siberian Tigers are actually much smaller than the coastal Siberian Brown Bear. The rarely reach 300 kg. But Siberian Tigers will sometimes kill cubs and smaller Brown Bears less than 120- 130 kg.

Just as it is debatable whether the Siberian tiger or the Bengal tiger is the biggest, the same holds true for the polar bear and the Kodiak bear. The size difference is just too close to call.  
 
But as for strength and raw power, there is little room for debate. The Kodiak bear is the stronger of these two giants. That shoulder hump of solid muscle is for digging into rock-hard ground for roots, grubs, and ground squirrels. It also gives his already incredible bear strength a boost in pure physical power. Enough to overturn huge boulders and fallen trees, and to rip open stumps.  
 
The polar bear lost this when he adapted to a semi-aquatic lifestyle. Take a good look at the two bruins. Perception.

The ancestor of the modern polar bear is the Kamchatka brown bear. This is also the ancestor of the Kodiak bear. During the Ice Age, a group of Kamchatka bears roamed into North America and became our Kodiaks. Another group became seperated in the far North and learned to hunt seals. These brown bears evolved into polar bears.  
 
Millions of years ago, a group of bear ancestors adapted an aquatic lifestyle, much like the polar bears, and eventually evolved into seals, sea lions, and walruses. These pinipeds are the bear's closest living relatives. Evolution is the process in which Mother Nature shapes her many creatures, by adaptation to changes in environment.  
 
*Kodiak bear wins the face-off, for those who are wondering.

I still think the polar bear would win. Like, I know kodiak bears can rip up forests and they have to be very, very strong to do it, but when it comes down to a fight, trees are inanimate objects and don't fight back whereas polar bears take on walruses.

If a walrus or an elephant seal were to find it's way onto the shores of Kodiak Island, I am sure that a Kodiak bear would have pinniped for lunch. Other than elephants, rhinos, and hippos, I don't know of any terrestrial animal that a Kodiak bear could not defeat. Giraffe is questionable.

I will NOT say that tigers and lions are weak, that is really, really far from the truth, no doubt about it, but beating a bear as large as a Kodiak? Probably not. 
 
 
 
Bears can probably take a few kicks from a giraffe (not saying it won't hurt, though), at least enough for it to break the giraffe's neck.

At the moment, I'm thinking 50/50. The polar bear is larger, but the kodiak is stronger lb for lb, so they should be evenly matched in terms of strength. Their body plans are very similar. The kodiak has longer claws, but the polar bear is better protected with a layer of fat. The polar bear is a carnivore, but the kodiak tends to be more agressive. All in all, until more info comes foreward, I'm going to have to call this one 50/50.

kodiak bears gonna win most of the time, its claws are long and sharpe enough to rip through the polar bears skin/fat. polar bears claws are alot shorter than a brown bears. brown bear also more powerfully built, therefore will be the stronger bear.

Are you guys really serious? First of, both are very powerful animals. Size and strength DO NOT MATTER is a fight, and neither does hostility levels. Not when you have two animals so closely matched. That's like saying in the UFC the bigger stronger guy will always win...I don't think so. It's all up to the situation. However, my money would be on the Kodiak. I don't care if a Polar eat Belugas because Kodiak's are super fast and the catch and destroy Moose. They might be mild tempered but when angered they are unstoppable. The Polar might be taller and have reach advantages but it's not use to the bulk and strength of a Kodiak. A healthy grown Kodiak would probably topple the Polar.

I'm also SOOOOOO tired of hearing that bullshit about Polars. Yes they take down Walrus....CUBS!!!!! Full grown Walrus is too much for it to handle. Many polar bears die trying to eat a walrus, and I don't care about who is the omnivore and who is the carnivore because Hippos destroy nile crocodiles at almost every encounter and croc's are several times bigger and much more deadly....fail.

Oh and one more thing, for the imbecile who said that the lion is bigger than the tiger...please for the love steak, do more research the tiger is the largest feline species alive today. The Siberian Tiger is longer, larger, and heavier than lion. But I agree, as much as I love the tiger the lion would most likely win 6/10 for it being a much better fighter than the tiger.

I saw someone wrote that the "big white guy " meaning the polar bear would win. well i hate to break it to you but all polar bear has BLACK SKIN! they have white hair but their skin is as black as their nose! so the "big black guy" would win

"Kodiak VS Polarbear"  
 
I believe that it wounldn't be a fight at all. Kodiaks and Polarbears have this system in them programmed in there DNA when it comes to fighting one another or diffferent bears. They test eachother out much like sumo wrestlers pushing and shoving each other. Bears weather its a Kodiak or Polarbear use this "Playmode" so they dont have to take it out in "Aggressive mode" !!! I believe these beautiful animals both polar and Kodiak alike should be left alone . I think we should be thinking of more ways to be saving these scared animals then Hunting them or making them fight one another !!!

Both bears are capable of attaining similar sizes, but size is not the deciding factor. The polar bear is a more long faced "doggish" type of bear, and excellent predator adapted to it's niche, but if you watch polar bears fight it always ends up in a wide mouthed biting match. That is because the polar ice does not favor the long deadly claw. You almost never see the polar bear kill an seal or a walrus with a skull crushing swipe. The polar bear is a bite killer. 
 
Not so the Kodiak. The Kodiak, though from a fish protein rich niche, is still a giant Grizzly, and Grizzlies are swipe killers, using their long claws to deadly effect. Grizzlies are legendary for killing cattle and moose with one head smack of their paws. The Kodiak is a biter, and a knockout puncher. 
 
IMHO, this give the weapons advantage to the Kodiak. Plus, there are just to many recorded conflicts between arctic Grizzlies and larger Polar bears that always end up with the Polar bear retreating. Polar bears are afraid of Grizzlies, and for good reason! 
 
Winner - Kodiak.

I just finished reading these months of unsubstantiated bickering and I just like to remind you people that in nature anything is possible. Baboons chase lions. Hyenas fuck up lions regularly. Mongoose kills cobras. Hell wolverines can hold back bears and wolves. Ive seen films , of lions and tigers fighting......in fact there is a famous old black and white circus movie that had a genuine free for all fight in the big cat cage and none of them won.They just fucked each other up. I also saw a fight between two tigers and a small brown bear in about a foot of water. AS Hard as the tigers tried, they couldnt kills the bear and eventually got tired of getting swiped. 
NO ONE CAN SAY WHICH ANIMAL WILL WIN! If you put a 30lb pit bull up against a 40 lb pit bull are you going to be able to say which one will wins? Fuck no! A little speculating is ok, but you people are fucking just perpetuating your own stupidity. And im not talking about the

If the Kodiak bear is such a mighty predator, why does he life only on Kodiak island, while polar bears are spreaded over the whole arctic area? 
 
Also that some Grizzlys may chase away polar bears does not mean anything. 
Or did you never see a small dog chasing a big one away, which is wandering around? 
 
Polar bear is surely the winner. 
Sometimes they have to swim for days in the ocean just to fight afterwards against another polar bear for some food. They are used to fight and kill.

this will be a very close fight to be honest the polar bear has speed agility and a bit if size advantage it also has sharper claws and teeth the brown bear has the strength advantage and the endurance advantage both predators can do some damage but kodiak bears unlike polar bears are not predators this means they are less aggressive so the fight favors the polar bear

Since these bears do not share habitat or diet, it is unlikely that they would ever meet. It not in either the kodiac or polars biological or evolutionary interests to fight. Kodiac vs Polar? Get a life and subscribe to Pro Wrestling.

The kodiak bear has a heavier build along with an extra hump of muscle a polar bear does not have. the polar bear has thinner bones and has less pound for pound strength. he does not know how to deal with another predator of similar size , unlike the kodiak who had many territorial fights and are reported to have knocked other bears in the air or something, which is a little hard to believe. it is a cool solitary beast just like the polar bear but the polar bear just does not look as fierce and mighty as the kodiak on there cool island and what not. People who have not interest in these mighty creatures and megalodon which was way thicker at the same size as a great white than a great white I like to think of him as a megalodon piranha ( so cornet it is funny and felt the need to say it) obviously do not see it the way I do darn scientist breaking creatures I to classes and understanding them they re divine spirite beast of the forest

Any other bear besides a Polar bear would not be able to survive in the Polar bears enviroment, it would starve. Polar bears are uniquly adapted over thousands of years. The biggest meanest Brown or Kodiac would not last the summer.

The kodiak would probably win in the 440 and shorter races, but the polar would win middle and long distance. The kodiak would take the shot put, but the polar would surely win the discus. They would both lose the pole vault and the high jump, but the polar might have an edge in the long jump. I think Kodiak would win a wrestling match, but polar would prevail in a boxing match. Kodiak would win at poker, but polar would clearly be better at pool, chess and checkers. Three out of four times, the Kodiak would win at backgammon.

Posted @ Thursday, April 19, 2012 12:12 PM by steve
SHUT UP!!!. Polar bear will win not that stupid Kodiak bear.  
_ Strenght: Although Kodiak bear is more heavily buit with more massive shoulder structure, polar bear is a bigger animal. The average weight for Kodiak bear is 400kg and polar bear is 500kg-600kg, only at peak time that the Kodiak bear has the same weight class with the polar bear. So this mean polar bear is 100kg-200kg heavier, polar bear has his size advantages and his larger size give him the strenght to match the more heavily buit Kodiak bear but smaller bear. 
_ Height: polar bear is taller, has longer forelimbs, longer neck would allow him to attack first and he can attack easily than Kodiak bear due to his greater height 
_ Skull and bite force: people usually think that Kodiak bear has stronger bite force than polar bear because polar bear skull is smaller and narrower and that is wrong !. Polar bear though has weaker skull than Kodiak bear, they actualy have the same bite force because they have the same number of bones and muscular for biting. Like i said, polar bear has weaker skull but it's stil far more powerful enough to hold on the stress cause by his jaw muscles. 
_ Teeth: the canies of the polar bear are way longer, bigger and sharper than the Kodiak bear. And thus cause more damages and injures  
_ Paws: many people think that Kodiak bear swipes a lot stronger than polar bear and that is so WRONG !!!. Although Kodiak bear has more powerful shoulder structure, polar bear paws are far bigger and heavier than those of Kodiak. Each of his front paws is up to 30cm wide in diameter and weighs up to 18kg !. And polar has its strenght comes from its larger size and he also swipe at a higer position than Kodiak because of his greater height 
_ Claws: Kodiak bear's claws are bigger don't mean that it is deadlier or causing more damage. Kodiak bear's claws are massive, up to 10cm long, but beacause it's too large, it contract with the ground too much and Kodiak bear also uses his claws for digging too. These make Kodiak's bear claws are extremely blunt just like your finger tip. Polar bear's claws, though they are smaller, only 5cm long, they're stockier, more solid as well as a lot sharper than those of Kodiak bear. Of course polar bear's claws aren't as sharp as those of tiger or lion because its claws are non retractable and still constract with the ice. But beacuse polar bear'claws are shorter than Kodiak bear'claws which makes it's less constract to the ground and polar bear don't use their claws for digging (except for pregnant female) thus sharper claws. Smaller but shaper claws will absolutely cause much more damage than larger but blunter claws, just like tiger's claws will cause more serious injures than bear's claws 
_ Defences: many people think that Kodiak bear has thicker fat and polar bear has thinner. Once again, that is the most STUPID things i've ever heard. Polar bear has 10cm thick fat which is as thick as if not even thicker than those of Kodiak bear. Polar bear need fat to protect it from the extremely cold climate so it must always has this thick fat and blubber or it will die from its all favorite enviroment. Kodiak bear need fat for hibernation, so they will only has that kind of thick fat at peak time when there're a lot salmons to feed and to icrease the thicknest of its fat. At normal time, they have much thinner fat layer because they don't need it anymore and there're just enough food for them to maintain this kind of thick fat. 
_ Size: like i said polar bear is biiger. But why the Kodiak bear in the above picture look so massive ??. Because that bear lives in the zoo, where it's always well fed and safety. That why they can become so big and fat. It's also the reason why the biggest Kodiak bear is larger than the biggest polar bear. A well fed polar bear should be way bigger than a well ged Kodiak bear but because polar bear doesn't suit the warmer climate in the zoo so it can grow to its actual maximum size. On the other hand, Kodiak bear doesn't have any restriction so it can freely grow to its maximum size 
_ Skills: Kodiak bear good at fighting but polar bear good at killing. Kodiak only knows how to defeat its enemies, how to make its opponents run away. But polar bear know how to kill its enemies as fast and as safe as possible. That why polar bear can kill bull walruses or even Beluga whales though these animals are multi times the bear size. Many people think that Kodiak can kill the bull walrusses and Beluga whales much better than polar bear and that is absolutely wrong. Like i said, Kodiak bear has small, blunt canies and extremely blunt claws which actually doesn't cause much damage on the thick hire of walrusses. And Kodiak bear doesn't have the skills to kill such behemoth creatures. It doesn't know which integral part on its prey to attack, Kodiak bear only rely on its bruth strenght to overpower its prey. But bull walrusses and Beluga whales are simply to large to be overpower even by Kodiak bear or polar bear. You must have the skills and weaponds to kill those animals that multi times your size and Kodiak bear just doesn't have it. Although Kodiak bear is known to kill very large animals like elk or moose just because Kodiak bear is still powerful enough to overpower those animals but not Beluga whales or bull walrusses. 
_ Neck mucsle: many people think that Kodiak bear neck stronger just because its shorter, does it really make sense ? Absolutely not. Plant makes up to 70%-80% of Kodiak bear diet. They just rarely go hunting for large animals only when they have the right opportunity. So eating plants doesn't need a really strong neck muscle. Polar bear always uses his neck muscle to pull its preys out of the ice hole, its prey is usually a small 50kg-70kg ringed seal but sometimes it is a giant 1350lbs Beluga whale and polar bear still pulls this whale out of the hole with ease, just like the way it pulls the ringed seal out. Polar bear is even known to pull a 2 metric ton bull walrus for great distances. So polar bear use neck muscle more than Kodiak bear, in my opinion, polar bear has a stronger neck muscle. 
==> In conclusion: Polar bear for sure

I live in Montana and we have a wolf problem. Mountain lions are starting to kill wolves for food, but they are hidden in trees when they attack. Who's to say that if a cougar attacked a wolf head on that the wolf wouldn't win? It's just like with bears. Who's to say that the smaller one won't win in a fight?
Posted @ Monday, July 02, 2012 11:06 PM by Montana Gal
There is a lot of debate over size and strength. Well, you only have to be just strong enough to inflict a mortal wound. There also has been a lot of talk about polar bears running away from grizzlies. I believe this plays into the mortal wound category. In their separate environments I believe (due to food source availability) the Kodiak has a better chance of survival when dealing with injuries. On the other hand, with limited food sources, the polar bear would have a harder time coping with injuries. Survival can be determined by which particular bear performs the best risk/benefit analysis. Polar bears have endurance problems? My understanding is they swim and travel over vast ranges. I understand the explosive energy expended during fight, but what happens during predation? 
 
I would root for the polar bear due to future extinction potential, but I would not bet the farm on either.

I think the voting is accurate for this one.  
 
It's a toss up, with the Kodiak's more girth and aggressiveness giving it the ever slightest of advantages. Not enough to make or break the match though.

Posted @ Saturday, September 15, 2012 11:56 AM by gavin
It just so happens that I may be the only person alive that has actually seen this fight in real life. I live in the Kodiak borough and I was fishing on the inside shore three years ago just after the last snow fall which happened very late (1st week of June!). My buddy radioed me that a Polar had been seen working the beach on dead walrus pups and I should be on the lookout because he wanted a pic. It just so happened that an hour later i see this big lug coming happy-go-lucky bouncing down the beach toward me so I got out my camera and climbed up a spruce tree about thirty yards up the bank from where I was casting. I am a bear sissy and I climb trees. But I'm an alive bear sissy, so what? Anyway,this big goofy galute smells me and gets all snuffly and picks up his pace and when he gets to where I was standing I start snapping pics. My heart was pounding out of my chest! Then, the bear spots me and freezes. Looking straight at me. I felt about the size of a fig Newton in a pre school classroom. So I think, "did I eat enough potassium today? Are my hands going to cramp up and force me to fall?" then, with visions of the bear using my new best friend the tree to learn how to climb trees I heard some rustling under my tree and while trying to get my mind around my predicament I watched as the biggest effing Kodiak I have ever seen mosy out from under the spruce walking right at an equally huge polar. My relief was as silent as I could make it knowing that I had just gone from tasty morsel to forgotten crumb. So here are these two colossal giants. The polar just stands there, as if the Kodiak is no big deal and the Kodiak has an unmistakable something in his step that says "I'm going to eff you up." I was under a spell. I could barely breath I was so intent on hearing everything but I needent have worried because what happened next was plenty loud enough to hear, although if i hadn't been there and heard it for myself i would not believe it, but the Kodiak bear stopped about fifteen feet from the still motionless polar and said, and no bull crap, actually spoke in a deep and resonating growl "you got a purty mouth, boy." i nearly fell from my tree in disbelief but what happened next held my attention like a vise. Both bears erupted in laughter, rolling on the sand clutching their bellies. I knew at that point i must be in a hospital in a coma or something and i was dreaming but my alter reality felt so real in part because it did not stop. The polar bear sat up and said "wait, check this out, yo mama so fat the cheetoe company new bags advertised as shape like her!" and the Kodiak and polar erupted in a fresh round of guffaws. It was a sick twist of fate or something which had me watch what ensued. It was the yo mama fight of two epic jokers. It went on for hours and i found myself laughing out loud, not caring if they heard me anymore. In the end it didn't matter because they parted as friends when both were tapped out and ill never forget what the polar bear said before walking away, "I'll see you next year Trent. Bring your A game though, and if that stinky cheese in the tree is still there next year, its mine!" Needless to say I had all but forgotten to take pictures so I won't be sharing them. But I feel glad my word alone from my unique experience can put to rest this age old question. Both bears love to fight and slay the other but only figuratively, so to speak.

Its Kodiak. On the rare occasions that they do actually approach the size of the biggest male Polar Bears, Kodiak/Coastal Brown Bear are more robustly built in the head and forequarters and with double size claws. Polar Bears are more streamlined and more adapted. Coul be more prone to overheating.

I'm no bear expert but in my opinion the kodiak would win 8 out of 10. My reasoning is the experience fighting it has to have over the polar bear who has broader range as a nomad and much fewer encounters with other bears vs the isolated and concentrated numbers of the kodiak who probably fights quite often. Granted I do believe the polar is a better natural made killer with its longer reach and perfectly designed meat eating teeth to tear and shred. I also believe the polar has more stamina for sure as its much leaner and it also has the speed advantage. But the polar would b punked
Posted @ Thursday, May 30, 2013 11:31 PM by Troy
Know one really knows who wins. But for my opinion, it is more likely that the Kodiak will win. Both Kodiak and polar bear are close to the same size. A polar bear reaches about 10.4 feet high when standing up and weighs about 1,190 pounds. Kodiak bears stand up 10 feet, and weigh about 1,200 pounds. Kodiaks are faster, heavier, more dangerous, and have a bigger bite force. Polar bears are only taller and stronger than Kodiaks. Since Kodiaks are faster, they can smack a polar bear, then the polar bear will be distracted by their attack, and since the Kodiak has a bigger bite force, it will give more damage to the polar bear. So when the polar bear is distracted for about 5-10 seconds, the Kodiak can give a quick, harsh bite, and will kill the polar bear. So the Kodiak will be able to win. For more information go to

Also, Kodiaks have more thicker fur so it is harder for a polar bear to bite the Kodiak on the neck. Polars have hollow fur, so it will be easier.
Posted @ Saturday, September 28, 2013 9:38 PM by Ahnaf
The Kodiak bear will kill the polar 90% of the time. Hell; even the barren ground grizzlies dominate beached whales and polar bear kills, and those guys are only a third the size of a polar bear. The Kodiak is stronger and more aggressive.
Posted @ Friday, August 08, 2014 6:47 PM by ephraim
The average mature male polar bear weighs roughly 900 pounds. Average mature male Kodiak brown bear weighs roughly 800 pounds. The polar bears weight advantage is pure blubber. The Kodiak has a bigger head, stronger jaws, and more massive upper-body strength. No contest - Kodiak 9 out of 10.
Posted @ Saturday, August 09, 2014 2:08 PM by Ephraim
If you look at dogs, the smaller low to the ground pit-bull will easily kill much larger animals. I see the polar bears longer neck as just a disability. If the Kodiak gets a hold of that long neck it's over. Also why aren't there any recorded footage of these to types of bear fighting? Neither wants to tangle with the other and meaning they are roughly equivalent in toughness. lol
