Русский: Самец полярного медведя (Ursus maritimus) только что упустил добычу — морского зайца, но продолжает искать, неустанно прыгая с одной льдины на другую.
Deutsch: Dieser Eisbär hatte gerade einen Mißerfolg bei der Jagd nach einer Bartrobbe. In der Folge suchte er unruhig nach weiterer Beute und sprang dabei von einer Eisscholle auf die andere.
Español: Este oso polar macho (Ursus maritimus) no pudo capturar una foca barbuda. Posteriormente buscó sin descanso otra presa; Saltando de un témpano de hielo a otro.
Polski: Temu samcowi niedźwiedzia polarnego (Ursus maritimus) właśnie nie udało się złapać fokowąsa brodatego (Erignathus barbatus). Po tym nerwowo szukał kolejnej zdobyczy przeskakując z jednej kry na kolejną.
Українська: Цей білий ведмідь тільки що зазнав невдачу переслідуючи морського зайця. Згодом він почав неспокійно шукати іншу жертву, перестрибуючи з однієї крижини на іншу.
