Polar bears have webbed feet?
Is it true that polar bears have webbed hind feet like a duck?

However Polar Bears do have 'partially' webbed toes to aid their swimming and walking in snow.
A little research will confirm this

However, the feet are very large to distribute load when walking on snow or thin ice and to provide propulsion when swimming; they may measure 30 cm across in an adult. The pads of the paws are covered with small, soft papillae (dermal bumps), which provide traction on the ice. The polar bear's claws are short and stocky compared to those of the brown bear, perhaps to serve the former's need to grip heavy prey and ice. The claws are deeply scooped on the underside to assist in digging in the ice of the natural habitat.
