Andean Bears

Tremarctos ornatus

A pair of Andean Bears (also called Spectacled Bears) at Durrell in Jersey.

The noise you can hear in the video is running water, these bears are surrounded by a sort-of moat. (video coming soon)

No Dan, not yet. Andean bears live in a protected area near the paramo zone of the Nevado del Ruiz (volcano). But I would love to spot them, maybe next year I'll be able to do it.

Have you spotted them Carolina? I know they are extremely elusive. I saw evidence of them feeding on plants above the cloudforest in Ecuador but no sightings.
