Does it make it back to its den in this riddle? Is "den" the operative word?

white would need slightly different words IMO.

Plus we all know that polar bears live in igloos :-)

And they're not white. Seriously! Their hairs are hollow and transparent, and they look white on a background of snow.

They look yellowish to me - as though they smoke.

Polar Bear Fur
Despite what our eyes tell us, a polar bear's fur is not white. Each hair shaft is pigment-free and transparent with a hollow core.

Polar bears look white because the hollow core scatters and reflects visable light, much like ice and snow does.

When photographed with film sensitive to ultraviolet light, polar bears appear black.
