RESCUE BEAR 49
AAGE : 8 Years Old
Name meaning: Name was given to him by his previous owner.
History: Along was kept at Mini Zoo Hot Springs, Tawau, in the south east of Sabah and displayed together with an adult female sun bear Simone. They were surrendered to the Sabah Wildlife Department in early January 2016 and underwent quarantine at Lok Kawi Zoo. On the first day of his arrival at BSBCC, Along barked and appeared to be aggressive when the transportation cage was moved.
Personality: He is a bear that is a huge fan of enrichment and wants to be the first to receive treats! He enjoys destroying and having maximum use of enrichment! He is a very clumsy bear. We do not want to mess with Along!! Whatever treats or toys Simone gets, he also wants to have it! He particularly enjoys the turning Aussie dog ball enrichment where he will pull, push and rub over the ball using his gentle face or short sleek fur. When he gets excited, he likes hopping and is as hyperactive as ever. He also likes to engage in new items presented to him. He spends a lot of time exploring.
Adoption: Brad Joseph is adopting Along under the My Bear Adoption Programme.
