Sloth Bear (Melursus ursinus)…
The Sloth Bear (Melursus ursinus) is native to the subcontinent of India. There are two subspecies: the Indian sloth bear (Melursus ursinus ursinus) and the Sri Lankan sloth bear (Melursus ursinus inornatus).
The Indian sloth bear inhabits forested and grassland regions of India, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Bhutan. The Sri Lankan sloth bear is found only on the island of Sri Lanka in lowland forests.
Sloth Bear (Melursus ursinus)
The Sloth Bear is a nocturnal species found in living in the forests of Southern Asia. They are insectivorous and are very skilled at extracting termites for food. They use their claws to dig out a termite mound until they can get at the combs within, and then suck the termites up through a gap in their front teeth. This can be a noisy process, and in fact these bears are said to make a wide range of noises from barks and screams when afraid, to gurgling and humming when they are at rest.
Sloth bears were used as dancing bears in India for many centuries, and despite being made illegal in 1972, the practice continued right up until 2009. Sloth bears were also potentially the inspiration for the character Baloo in the Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling.
