Happy #MoonBearMonday everyone!
Having rescued more than 500 moon and sun bears from the bear bile industry in Vietnam and China, Animals Asia staff are very aware that these animals love to play.
On a recent trip to Animals Asia's Vietnam sanctuary in the foothills of Tam Dao National Park, we caught these two bears apparently expressing play behaviors with which we're all familiar.
Like a cross between schoolyard favorite "tag," and nursery classic "peekaboo," this game made great use of two trees connected together by wooden beams.
Working their way round the structure, the two bears paw, tickle and poke each other - all in the name of good fun.
