TextNo. Some species of bears live in the tropics, and they don't hibernate. The sun bear, for example, does not hibernate. Others, like the giant panda and the polar bear, do not hibernate. Black bears that live in warm climates may be active year round, although black bears may hibernate in other, colder areas.
While polar bears are adapted to extreme northern conditions, even brown bears like the grizzly can live in a wide range of habitats and historically, they once did, but now they only exist where they don't bother man, in the far north:
