RESCUE BEAR 26
AGE: 9 Years Old
Name meaning: “Forest” in Lundayeh language (Lundayeh is a native Sabahan tribe)
History: Fulung was found by a villager’s hunting dog in a remote forest area of Long Pasia, Sabah. He was taken as a house pet and grew very quickly under the villager’s care. Fulung was surrendered to the Sabah Wildlife Department and brought to the Lok Kawi Zoo before being sent to BSBCC on 15th August 2010. He was injured by the hunting dog and had a bite mark on his body. He also had a scratch mark on his forehead which is believed to be caused by the cage bar that he used to try breaking out from.
Personality: Fulung is best known for loving to stand on his hind legs to get a better smell or look. Fulung has proved to us that he is one of the most confident and lovely bears in the centre. He will keep busy. He spends his days roaming around the free-range enclosure, foraging up invertebrates, basking in the sun, taking naps and loving to climb high above the trees. Fulung took easily to the forest environment and spends a great deal of his days surrounded by loving pals (Ah Bui, Julaini, Ah Lun and Rungus). Fulung is an expert climber and will show how well he can climb to the top with rediscovering his natural behaviour! He is anything and has become a much loved member of the sun bear family! He will keep learning to be a wild bear and have fun everyday! He always captures the hearts of people with his enthusiasm and loving nature.
Identifying mark or trait: Has a wide and pointy chest mark and open dry wound on his abdomen.
Fulung is available for SHARE BEAR adoption.
