Sloth bear cubs make their debut at Brookfield Zoo

May 8, 2013 (BROOKFIELD, Ill.)

The sloth bear cubs were born in January to 10-year-old Hani.

Their birth was the first successful sloth bear birth at the zoo.

So far the cubs, a boy and a girl, have not been given names.

Zoo officials say the cubs will stick by their mother's side until they turn about 2 or 3-years-old.

To learn more about the sloth bear, you can visit Brookfield Zoo during their Annual Bear Awareness Weekend on Saturday May 18 and Sunday May 19.
