Bear watch

Andean bears or Spectacled bears, like Paddington, have been spotted in Rainforest Concern reserves in Peru and Ecuador! Have a look below to see camera trap footage of the bears.

The male spectacled bear is rubbing himself against the stick to leave his scent and making his own bear sign post! Bears do this for a number of reasons but the main reason is to communicate with other bears. This could be to keep track of each other, mark their territorial range or attract mates.
