RESCUE BEAR 19
AGE : 9 Years Old
Name Origin: She was mistakenly identified as a panda bear by her previous owner.
History: Panda was found in Tawau district of Sabah and was later sent to the Kudat district, in the northern part of Sabah. Both Panda and her male companion, Kudat were displayed in a mini zoo as panda bears. They were fed with chicken daily, which led them to have bigger body sizes compared to other bears their age.
Personality: Panda is a very happy bear. She especially likes water and loves to play in her bath when it is filled. She delightfully splashes the water. She figured out that tapping on things with her claws, and listening carefully, can tell her if the object is hollow and perhaps may contain some tasty treats like termites. She has beautiful mauve-coloured eyes. On May 20th, 2014, Panda had a traumatic injury on the rostral area due to some aggression bites by a male adult beside the cage. Thank you to Veterinarian Dr.Laura Benedict from Sabah Wildlife Department who helped to reconstruct suture of the tissue on her rostral area. Now, Panda is living together with Amaco. They seem to be staying well with each other.
Identifying mark or trait: Panda has a line around her snout, possibly from having a tight-fitting muzzle used in the past.
Panda is available for MY BEAR adoption.
