Baby Bornean sun bears Palu and Pagi were born at the San Diego Zoo on October 25.  They debuted at the San Diego Zoo exhibit on Monday.

This is the third birth of Bornean sun bears in North America.  Bornean sun bears are the smallest species of bear.  Their small stature and long claws make the bears well-suited to living in trees.  Due to habitat loss, poaching, and pet trade, Bornean sun bears are endangered in the wild.
