Sloth Bear

Sloth Bear (Melursus ursinus)


 It has also been called “labiated bear” because of its long lower lip and palate used for sucking insects. It has a long, shaggy fur, a mane around the face, and long, sickle-shaped claws. Sloth bear fur is completely black, save for a whitish Y- or V-shaped mark on the chest. It shares features of insectivorous mammals. It feeds on fruits, ants and termites.
