The Sloth Bear

August 08, 2018

  I have taken photos of Sloth Bears in India and Sri Lanka

Indian Sloth Bear (Melursus ursinus ursinus)

The sloth bear is the most widespread bear species in India, where it mostly found in areas with forest cover.                                       These animals are unique among bear species in that they feed primarily on ants and termites.                                                                   The females carry their young on their back.

Sri Lankan sloth bear (Melursus ursinus inornatus)

The Sri Lankan sloth bear is smaller than the Indian Sloth Bear.
