Product details

Sloth bears have very long, sickle-shaped claws that grow to a length of up to eight centimetres and look like the claws of a sloth. The bears use these claws to tear open the entrances to termite mounds. They then stick in their snouts and suck out the termites, assisted by their unusually long lower lip.

Fun fact

Sloth bears have a striking patch of light-coloured fur on their chests in the shape of the letter Y, V or O.
