RESCUE BEAR 27
AGE : 8 Years Old
Name origin: Name given by previous owner who surrendered her to BSBCC.
History: She was captured by poachers and kept as a house pet in Ranau district (West coast part of Sabah). Due to her unbalanced diet, she showed symptoms of calcium deficiency like walking in an abnormal way and shorter body structure. Now that Mary’s physical condition has improved, she can climb around like other bears.
Personality: Mary is certainly a very precious bear in our centre. She is very friendly to bears and people. For Mary, being previously kept as a pet makes her sometimes forget that she is a bear. Now, she hangs around with the sub-adult bears, Boboi, Kitud, Tan-Tan, Dodop, Wawa, Noah, and Nano which improves her behaviour as a sun bear again. Mary is playful and a little bit grumpy with her playmates. She likes to spend her time resting under the shade of trees. She will take a rest after walking a few steps. Mary also likes to examine hollows in the trees. Mary likes digging a lot. She digs like an archaeologist looking for termites, earthworms and invertebrates. Mary loves to suckle her feet to seek comfort. She creeps into the heart of anyone who spends time with her.
Identifying mark or trait: Distinctively longer face shape
Mary is available for SHARE BEAR adoption.
