Animal of the day – 5/26/2011 – The Sunbear

The Sun Bear

The animal of the day is the Sunbear. (Did you know: Legend says their bib shaped yellow patch under their chin represents the rising sun!

I say it looks like they are messy eaters who ate too much mangoes.

"Exhaustion...too much mangoes in my belly..."

Because they live in tropical temperatures, sun bears do not need to hibernate and are able to mate at any time of year. Unlike North American bears, male and female sun bears may hang out or live together while raising the cubs.
