Sun bear cub Layla growing up fast and happily
Layla the sun bear outgrew her old room at Animals Asia's Vietnam Bear Rescue Center in less than six months. Now that's what we call a growth spurt.
Layla was rescued from poachers and brought to the sanctuary in June, when she weighed less than 30 pounds.
Layla continues to investigate each new toy and platform in her space — of which there are many. "Layla is such a well-adjusted, active and playful bear," according to Vietnam Bear and Vet Team director Annemarie Weegenaar.
"She explored every blade of grass and tried out every piece of furniture in the enclosure straight away. It's a real pleasure to see her out there enjoying herself in an environment that satisfies her needs."
