Indian Sloth Bear
Indian Sloth Bear. The white patch around their neck and thick black coat around their body makes them a standout figure amidst the green dense forest.
Did you know? Sloth Bears are evolved over the years in terms of strength and aggressiveness. You might have seen or heard about the face-off between Sloth Bears and Tigers and more often it is believed that the Tiger will not get into trouble and move on. This is purely because of the strength sloth bears have developed over the years. Amazing, isn’t it?
About the photo : This was captured in Nagarhole, Karnataka, India. We were cautiously looking around in the dense forests and hoping to spot something exciting and there he appeared out of nowhere jumping out of the bushes. He was at first shy seeing us but later on got comfortable and started digging the ground for his evening snack.
