Inca’s a sun bear!

Asiatic black bear, Inca, is out and about enjoying the summer sunshine.

The elderly lady, who is now 32-years-old, is usually spotted snoozing in a dug-out nest on the ground, but during yesterday’s sunny spells she found the perfect place to soak up the rays on top of her climbing frame.

An endangered species Asiatic, or Himalayan, black bears usually hibernate during the colder seasons and become more active when the sunshine appears.

Learn more about Inca every day at 11.45 am (until Sunday, July 29) during our EAZA Campaign when Presenters will be staging a series of walks, talks and feeds to highlight the plight of declining species from Southeast Asia.
