Malayan Sun Bear
We have two sun bears named Somnang and Rotana, who were born in 2003. They came to live at Edinburgh Zoo in 2010.
The boys are great friends and spend most of their time snoozing together and foraging for fruit and nuts.
Rotana gets very excited, searching high and low to sniff out hidden goodies.
Somnang, meaning Lucky, takes things more slowly, usually meandering after Rotana who has put in the ground work.
Location in the Zoo
Our sun bears can be found in our sun bear enclosure behind Budongo Trail.
Breeding Programme Category;
