RESCUE BEAR 37
AGE : 3 Years Old
SEX : Male
MEANING OF NAME: Originally known as Tan Sri, which is the name of his owner from the Mini Zoo Hot Springs Tawau, he has been re-named as “Sunbearo” in recognition of all the enabling support that the company, Neways has given to the centre.
HISTORY: Sunbearo was kept in a Mini Zoo Hot Springs, Tawau, South Eastern of Sabah before he was handed over to the Sabah Wildlife Department and BSBCC. Sunbearo was thin and weighed only 11.6kg.
PERSONALITY: Sunbearo and his friends took their first step out into the forest enclosure on 24th December 2015. Sunbearo enjoys his daily playtime at the forest with his buddies Montom, Susie, Loki, Bintang, Kala, Boboi, Kitud, Tan-Tan and Damai. Even when they have decided they are done playing, he continues to chase them around in the forest! It is endless fun to watch these rescued sun bears rolling and playing around in the forest just like children. He never stops being curious and always wants to explore and touch anything he can. Sunbearo's hesitant, curious and expressive face made him stand out from the start. He is still learning the necessary skills to make him become a wild sun bear on his own!
IDENTIFYING MARKS OR TRAITS: He has a special tiny "V"shape on his chest mark.
