Polar bears are big mobs with white fur and spawn only in the icy biomes. They were added in the Minecraft 1.10 update and to this day, most Minecrafters still don’t know what polar bears eat in Minecraft. Let’s pull the curtain!

What Do Polar Bears Eat in Minecraft

To be accurate, polar beats eat nothing in Minecraft! Not like other mobs where you can use a certain food to lure, tame, and breed them, you can’t do anything with polar bears! You can’t lure them using fish, tame them using raw fish, or can’t even breed them with any of the delicious fish you caught earlier.

With that being said, we still don’t know the intent of Mojang behind this. Whether the polar bears are only for decoration purposes, or to make the biomes more alive without any other functionalities. Mojang did a great job because along with the adult polar bears, baby polar bears (or cubs) also contribute to creating a great atmosphere in the snowy biomes.

We can see that whenever a polar bear is killed, it will drop 0-2 raw cod or raw salmon. This is a clear indicator that the polar bears in Minecraft actually hunt those fish and keep them in their pocket for eating later. So polar bears may eat raw cow and raw salmon.

If you want to raise the polar bears, to simplest way is to lure them to your house using a lead. And you can find polar bears spawning in most fluffy biomes such as snowy plains, ice spikes, frozen oceans, deep frozen oceans, frozen rivers, legacy frozen oceans, snowy slopes, jagged peaks, and frozen peaks.
