RESCUE BEAR 13
AGE : 12 Years Old
Name origin: Name after the town she was rescued from.
History: Arrived from Kinabatangan River in January 2009. She was in a very bad condition, as she was previously kept as a pet in a small iron-cage, probably since she was an infant. Her mother was suspected to have been killed for bear body parts for the black market. Kuamut’s neck was tied with an enormously heavy metal chain with a brass lock, weighing more than 2 kg. She might have been attached to this chain since she was a cub. Her neck was thin and worn when the chains were finally removed by specialists at the BSBCC. She is now one of the healthiest bears roaming around the forest enclosure of BSBCC.
Personality: Kuamut is a quiet and gentle bear. Every day she goes on her independent adventures in the forest. Susie is her closest friend and the only one she will play wrestle with. She has found a new big log and will spend time on it together with Susie. Kuamut can be easily spotted and never misses an afternoon nap on the platform near the bear house. Whenever other bears try to climb that tree, she will make a noise and give a warning growl. Be warned not to alarm her with sudden movements or noises. She loves to borrow and stay at other sun bear friends’ tree nests! She is an adamant survivor and seems happy to be at the centre. She’s learnt very well to search for her own food.
Identifying mark or trait: Kuamut has identifiable facial features with blue/grey eyes and white dot markings on her eyebrows. She also has a very broad chest mark with plenty of black dots.
Kuamut is available for MY BEAR adoption.
