Sun Bear

Second favourite of Oakland Zoo‘s residents are the two sun bears. The smallest of all the bears, they are another native of south-east Asia. They are also an endangered species and one of the (unfortunate) animals that are used in Asian traditional medicine.

In true Winnie-the-Pooh style, sun bears eat honey; in fact, they are sometimes called honey bears. Unlike Pooh though, they eat the bees too!
