What makes polar bears unique in terms of their swimming? (As compared to other land animals, anyway.)

Ummm, they are adapted for it? They can swim hundreds of miles, I'm taking a wild guess and saying not many other land animals can do that.

Oh! They use their front paws for propulsion and steer with their back legs.
