RESCUE BEAR 9
AGE : 11 Years Old
Meaning of Name: Beautiful (Malay)
History: She came from Lok Kawi Wildlife Zoo in June 2007 together with Cerah.
Personality: Jelita is well-known as the most acrobatic female at the centre. She can often be found hanging upside-down, legs flailing in the air, with her head arched way back, so she can flash you a big healthy grin. At the age of only three years old she was a very welcoming hostess to guests who came to inquire about the sun bears at BSBCC. The sunny patch on her chest delicately curves up at the corner in two streaks, as if to resemble two friendly fingers folded into a peace-sign. She has beautiful eyes.
Jelita’s playful energy is certainly filled with loving affection and curiosity. In the forest, she is the dominant bear and sometimes will fight with or bark at the other bears. Jelita used to be Cerah’s best friend. But they are not best friend anymore after the annual health check.
Identifying Mark or trait: Jelita’s chest mark splits like a wishbone on her right side.
Jelita is available for MY BEAR adoption.
