RESCUE BEAR 49
AGE : 7 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: Although he appeared to be fierce when he arrived, he adapted fairly well to his new cage. Along is a playful, energetic and curious bear. He enjoys playing with Simone and Kudat. When Along plays, he likes to stand up on his hind legs, pawing to them. When he gets excited, he likes hopping. When he is by himself, he likes to explore his environment by walking around and climbing up and down. He also likes to engage in new items presented to him. He spends a lot of time on exploring. Along is very alert and good at observing his surroundings. This makes him harder to approach but can be a huge strength for him if he gets to live in the wild in future.
Along is available for MY BEAR adoption.
