HISTORY: Boboi originally was from Pitas, Sabah. He was kept with another female, juvenile sun bear called “Kitud”. Both of them were handed over to the Sabah Wildlife Department in Singgaron village, Ranau district and arrived at BSBCC on October 30th, 2015. They were kept together in a cage and fed with milk, rice and fish. Boboi was a healthy sun bear juvenile when he first came in. He weighed 15.55kg.
PERSONALITY: In May of 2016, we introduced Boboi to the other sub–adult bears (Sunbearo, Loki, Bintang, Montom, Susie2, Damai, Mary and Kala) and were pleased to see him get along with all of the bears. He is a very cheeky and energetic male sun bear. He loves to wrestle with them. They never stop playing. He will always find ways to enjoy himself. On July 15th 2016, Boboi and his friends took their first steps on the forest floor. He was curious and huffed at the new environment given to him. He loves eating all fruits and invertebrates. He also loves to suckle on Kitud’s ears to seek comfort. He stays with Kitud most of the time, he likes to spend his time with her. His daily activities are filled with tearing, biting and climbing the trees. Having been without his mother since he was a tiny cub, he has never been taught the skills he will need to survive in the wild. Now he will have to learn from the other sun bears and eventually be able to return to his home in the forest.
Boboi is available for SHARE BEAR adoption.
