RESCUE BEAR 61
AGE: 1 Year Old
MEANING OF NAME: Originally known as Fifie. He has been re-named as “Joe” which was given by Joseph Myszkowski, one of the volunteers from the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA).
HISTORY: A person found the cub alone in the forest when he was three months old. He was rescued from Kg. Kipaku, Tambunan. The person then sent the cub to Lok Kawi Wildlife Park on the 12th of April 2018. The bear arrived at BSBCC on the 22nd of January 2019. He was in a healthy condition and his weight was 22.8 kg during the arrival.
PERSONALITY: He is settling down in his new home at BSBCC’s quarantine. Joe is always bright and curious. He is very tame and will suckle both his hind paws when in need of attention. Joe can eat anything and has a good appetite. His dens are filled with browse, toys, hammocks, a climbing structure, swings and a comfy platform for him to climb, play and rest on. He is always eager to receive various enrichment items. He is a playful bear and will roll around the dens to try out every corner of enrichment. He likes to spend his time resting on the platform. Joe is aware of surrounding sounds. For the next plan, he will be socializing with two cubs –Logan and Romolina and will then be moved to much larger dens, bigger than he has ever known. Slowly he learns to trust and is developing the skills pertinent to survival in the wild.
Joe is available for MY BEAR adoption.
