Moon Bears, or Asiatic black bears, are becoming increasingly rare in the wild. They have distinctive blazes on their chests that resemble the crescent moon. The bears are seldom seen but leave footprints, claw marks, hair, and bear nests high in trees. These traces provide clues about their lives in the mountains and valleys of South East Asia. Follow one moon bear in the wild as she eats, plays, hibernates, and wakes up again in the spring. See some photos of real Moon Bears at the back of the book!
