Sloth Bears Updates Apr 17, 2014

A sloth bear cub and a seal pup by any other name would still be as sweet, but our keepers chose the perfect names for them. Our sloth bear cub is named Remi and our seal pup is named Rona!

Asia Trail keepers who have been hand-rearing our sloth bear cub chose the name Remi. The name is derived from the rapid eye movement cycle of sleep (REM). When she was very young the cub slept with her eyes slightly opened, and keepers have spent many nights ensuring she sleeps soundly.
