RESCUE BEAR 25
AGE : 26 Years Old
Name meaning: The name was given by the previous owner. Named after the Tamaco Plantation and modified to Amaco
History: Amaco was found at Tamaco Plantation near the Lahad Datu district when the company first opened the area for oil palm plantation. Due to his diet of rice and condensed milk for at last 18 years, Amaco’s teeth are in a very bad condition.
Personality: Amaco is the oldest among the bears in the centre. Amaco does not like water and tends to shy away from it. It is believed that Amaco was never given any enrichment when he was kept as a pet, which explains his curious behavior towards enrichment activities. He has plenty of activities to keep him busy! He loves rolling, rubbing on peanut butter covered log feeders and digging into dead wood. He really focuses on working to get treats out of his enrichments. He greatly enjoys it! He relishes all his meals, bananas and honey are his favourite! Panda and Chin are Amaco’s best pals now. They love play wrestling in a soft way together.
Identifying mark or trait: Being the oldest bear in the centre, he has distinctively long claws and huge paws compared to other bears in the centre. Amaco lost most of his teeth due to his diet of rice and condensed milk.
Amaco is available for MY BEAR adoption.
