I’ve been super obsessed with sun bears lately, since I saw a pair of them at Colchester Zoo - and it wasn’t until yesterday that I suddenly made the connection that my pet Tweed (on subeta) just /had/ to be one. This is her initial design - the neck marking being like the collar of a smart tweed jacket, her eyes are muddy pink in colour and she has patches on her elbows…kind of leathery. Possibly the hair doesn’t grow there! So far she’s not talking to me as much as I’d like, but that could just be because she’s shy. (Because of her elbow eczema?!)

Two sun bears look like professional wrestlers as they take it in turns to pin each other to the ground. The playful Malayan Sun Bears - named after a golden yellow patch on their chest - grappled under a tree before rolling around on the floor at Zoo Miami in Florida, United States. Photographer Adrian Tavano said: “The fight lasted for about five minutes. They were an even match but the one with the lighter fur won in my opinion.” Did someone say ‘bear knuckle fighting’?
