Sloth Bear

I think he or she’s adorable as can be. I have never seen one but would like to someday. I have never seen a bear with a mane.

 

 

 

Khal20080410-191MMiThe sloth bear (Melursus ursinus), also known as the labiated bear,[2 is an insectivorous bear species native to the Indian subcontinent. The sloth bear evolved from ancestral brown bears during the Pleistocene and shares features found in insect-eating mammals through convergent evolution. The population isolated in Sri Lanka is considered a subspecies. Compared to brown and black bears, sloth bears have lankier builds, long, shaggy coats that form a mane around the face, long, sickle-shaped claws, and a specially adapted lower lip and palate used for sucking insects. Sloth bears breed during spring and early summer and give birth near the beginning of winter. They feed on termites, honeybee colonies, and fruits. Sloth bears sometimes attack humans who encroach on their territories. Historically, humans have drastically reduced their habitat and diminished their population by hunting them for food and products such as their bacula and claws. These bears have been used as performing pets due to their tameable nature.[3] The sloth bear is listed as Vulnerable by the IUCN due to habitat loss and poaching.

She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book came from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    • Yes, he or she is a real darling. But I looked at my pets’ claws and decided. The Sloth Bear’s claws are bigger and look sharper. SO I changed my mind about owning one. 😀

It’s awesome to visit here and reading the views of all the things the people I consider my colleagues have to say on the topic of these posts, while I am also of getting a lot of knowledge on the author and their writing. I am at home a lot because I recently went into remission of cancer. I like the fact that bad guys doesn’t always win in your books. Ana kick back and fight back with gusto.
