Solution The bear is... | Comment 3 of 45 |

The bear is black, but the hair appears to be white because it lacks pigmentation and is hollow.  That's just the way polar bears are, and the north pole is the only place you could have four walls supporting a roof that all face south.

I kind of doubt that a polar bear would venture that far north, though.

Edited to add link to fun facts about polar bears.
