Two endangered Bornean sun bear cubs born at the San Diego Zoo made their public debut today.
The twin cubs, born at the San Diego Zoo last Oct. 25, spent the day exploring their habitat, including scaling the exhibit's climbing structures, said Lisa Bryant, the zoo's lead keeper.
"We affectionately call them `monkey bears' since they are the most arboreal bear species," she said.
"The male is somewhat more reserved," Bryant said. "His sister, on the other hand, is the first to greet us and is very curious about what is happening outside of the bedroom."
The female cub is named Pagi, which means "morning" in a Malayan dialect. Her brother is named Palu, which is the name of a valley in Borneo.
The birth of a Bornean sun bear is very rare, according to the San Diego Zoo, where all three litters of cubs born in North America have occurred.
