The Sun Bear

The sun bear is the smallest of all bears and is found in southern Asias rainforests. it only stands at a height of 120-150 cm long and weigh 60-140 pounds. Males are also larger that females. Confrontation with humans is rare as these animals are usually sleeping through the day with very little social behaviour. they eat beehives and honey but they are omnivourous. The main two threats for a Sun Bear is deforestation and commercial hunting.
