IMG_0865 Sun Bear, deep in thought

Smallest of the bear family (they grow to only about half the size of an American black bear), also sometimes called "Honey Bears." They have formidable claws and teeth. And yet they are often considered suitable for keeping as pets. Weird. But he does look rather sweet.

 

He seems immersed in private meditation and almost seems to glow.
