RESCUE BEAR 55
AGE: 1 Year Old
MEANING OF NAME: Named after the town she was rescued from - village of Sikalabaan
HISTORY: Sika was found by a foreigner who travelled to the village of Sikalabaan, in Pensiagan district, one of the most rural areas in Sabah. He had visited BSBCC before. He decided to call BSBCC and asked us to rescue this bear cub. He saw that the bear cub was being kept in a chicken mesh cage as a pet. She was previously fed with condense milk, fruits and cereal.
PERSONALITY: She is the youngest female bear at BSBCC. Little Sika has stolen our hearts with her beautiful blue eyes. She is developing into a lovely and playful bear. She loves to play with small decayed wood, it is like a blankie for her. Other than that, her favourite toy is a heart shaped honeycomb. She enjoys playing for hours by biting and swaying the honeycomb while lying on the hammock platform. She shows curiosity with everything. She is brave and accepts everything on offer. She just cannot stop exploring either the environment or the enrichment. Sika has an amazing ability to climb high and hang on the platform. She is developing her muscles every day. She loves to play on the hammock with a hind leg hanging out. She has developed her small claws and small canines into sharp claws and strong canines. She will put her front paw in the fire hose pocket and Aussie Dog Ball to grab the nice treats within. She is growing up and she will continue to practice the forest skills needed to survive as a wild sun bear in the future.
ADOPTION: Sika was adopted by Sun Bear Sunscreen through the My Bear Adoption Programme.
