Polar bears are strong swimmers and use large slightly webbed front paws, known to swim more than 100 miles from lands.

Does the bolded line indicate that polar bears are able to swim more than 100 miles (in the arctic ocean) away from lands? Thanks.

Yes, they can - but they use the ice floes to rest on.

Thanks, Clive.

I did check my original sentence again, and it's what you reword "land." I wonder what the key is here for you to point out it's "land." Care for shedding more light?
Hi,

'Land' is a more general reference. It's also idiomatic.
