Nhan Ai - whose name means "compassion" - is now relishing her time among the grass, trees and visiting butterflies of Animals Asia's Vietnam Bear Rescue Center.
Recent footage shows this once timid bear playing robustly with a sanctuary puzzle feeder - chewing, pawing, biting and hugging this bamboo toy.
Animals Asia Bear and Vet Team Director Annemarie Weegenaar said:
"In the last few months Nhan Ai has become much more outgoing, more confident and is generally enjoying life to the full. It's quite common for rescued bears to take time to adapt to the outdoors and that was certainly true for Nhan Ai. But her recent improvement has been remarkable and a huge boost for the team. Seeing her lying in the grass and playing with the sanctuary equipment without a care in the world, makes all the hard work worthwhile."
Like Nhan Ai, make the most of your #MoonBearMonday.
