Sloth bear

Melursus ursinus

Description:

Though they are supposed to be nocturnal, the sloth bears at New Delhi Zoo were very active and fighting on the day I visited. Thankfully, the fight was not ferocious nor long. The bear has a shaggy coat and a droopy bottom lip which make them look almost cuddly.
