Like TVs Two Fat Ladies, these two damaged moon bears are far from being the best of pals, but have come to an understanding and agreed to put up with each other.
Animals Asia's Bear and Vet Team Director Annemarie Weegenaar said, "Maple has been cranky with other bears, growling and open mouthing at them through the bars ever since she arrived. But Dolly's passive demeanor seems to disarm her. Maple has agreed to tolerate Dolly now letting her sleep in the same den and follow her around the enclosure."
They have a lot in common after all.
Both were massively overweight and missing front limbs, most likely from being caught by hunters' snares in the wild, when rescued from Vietnam's bear bile farms.
