Sloth Bear

Pair of illustrated side elevation drawings of the Sloth Bear

The reclusive Sloth Bear (Melursus ursinus), shaggy, dusty and unkempt, lives in the forests in South Asia. Their chest usually has a whitish "V" or "Y" design, and their black coat and a cream-colored snout. Emitting noisy grunts and snorts, the Sloth Bear can often be found walking by itself in search of insects, usually at night since they are lonely-nocturnal animals. In addition to insects, Sloth Bears eat a wide variety of flowers and fruits including mango, fig, and ebony. They also can scale the tree to knock a bee honeycomb, which they can then enjoy on the ground below.
