      That is one of the strangest bears in have seen!

      Looks more like a Ussuri brown bear (Ursus arctos lasiotus) which is either moulting, or has a mild case of alopecia.

      1. Skull shape (this photo clearly shows an elongated skull, which is not typical for a Brown Bear).
      2. Body shape
      3. Wool coat
      Anyway, it is closer to the Tibetan Brown Bear (Ursus arctos pruinosus) Chengdu Zoo than to Ussuri Brown Bear (Ursus arctos lasiotus) - http://shaggygod.proboards.com/thread/478/ussuri-brown-bear?page=3#page=1

      At first glance I read TLD's comment as 'a mild case of Alpaca'. Which works.

      Move over ligers, Bearpacas are hitting the seen! :D

      That's one sorry looking bear!

      Alpacas are a prick to shear. I suspect this bear would have the same trait.
    There are no comments to display.
