This video clip was taken at the Beekse Bergen ‘safari park’ in Hilvarenbeek, Netherlands. I’d never heard of a ‘sloth bear’ – apparently they’re from the Indian subcontinent and eat insects.
Looks like balloons might form part of their diet in future . . .
I'm amazed it took that long for them to pop it! 🙂
Also known as Sun Bears. Always a good place to stop on the zoo ramble. They are so curious that they will often sit back and stare at you – possibly trying to figure out why you are standing there waving your arms and making weird noises?
