sun bear cub

IT’S FRIIIIDAY! Happy Friday! Big thanks to @littleteabear for submitting today’s hilarious and quite exciteable cub!

Have a wonderful day and a happy weekend.

Here’s what @littleteabear included with the above image:

This little darling is Rescue 193 of the Cambodian Branch of Free The Bears - given the name Arya Stark! Alex Cearns of Houndstooth photography had a photoshoot with her as she was an extremely expressive little cub who smiled when she was happy or excited! More pictures of her can be seen on the free the bears FB page, or you can buy a little set of cards with her picture on them and the proceeds go to help the bears the care for!

Baby sun bears are born blind, hairless, and helpless, and are completely dependent on their mothers for their first three months.  Their mothers will carry them in their mouths or, unusually, by cradling them in their arms while they walk on their hind legs, a behaviour seen in no other bear species.  The cubs nurse from their mother for around 18 months, and will stay with her until they are two years old.  Females are ready to find a mate of their own by the time they are three, and males reach sexual maturity at around four.
