About the Sloth Bear


The Shaggy-Coated, Insect Sucker known as the Sloth Bear

The sloth bear is a shaggy, untidy-looking member of the bear family. They’re indigenous to Southeast Asia and are mostly found in India. Their preferred habitats are flat tropical forested areas and they prefer to live alone although for mating, or if there is some food for many, they may be seen together. They can climb but not very effectively so they stay on the ground mostly. This species is fairly shy and usually nocturnal.
