    Well... we made the 200 mile round trip to see Chester's brand new baby sun bear and she is ADORABLE!

    Conditions hopeless for photography - high ISO, low shutter speeds and a good deal of over excitement from the photographer does not generally result in great shots - but I thought I'd share these anyway. Chester's little miracle bear - born to parents who were rescued themselves as cubs. I loved their new purpose built enclosure when I first saw it and it certainly seems to have been a success! Excellent work by Chester Zoo :)

    Big, big,huge fan of Bears Fi, Sunbears in particular.....always great to see a cub enjoying life.They remind me of big dogs in many ways....

    On the downside - do I need to tell you about Bear Bile Farming ? Quite possibly one of the most vile practices our eastern cousins use ?
