The Malayan Sun Bear, sometimes known as the dog bear, lives alone high in the trees in the dense lowland forests of Southeast Asia from southern China to Indonesia, including the islands of Sumatra and Borneo. They are the smallest and least known of the world’s eight living bear species (Ursidae family) and have extremely long, sickle shaped claws, a very long honey licking tongue and a short, shiny black or brownish coat. Although they are nocturnal animals, legend derives their name from the golden crescent on their throat, reminiscent of the rising sun.
