Polar bears are sexually dimorphic mammals in that males are significantly larger and heavier than females. They are nearly twice larger and heavier in comparison to the females. The typical weight of a male polar bear measures around 350–700 kg (772–1,543 lb). Males are highly aggressive but they usually avoid each other. However during breeding season male bears fight over the females. Male polar bears eat cubs especially when the food is scarce. The cannibalism behavior is more likely to be observed in male polar bears than female polar bears.
