... are like fingers for them. They won't regrow, and they can no longer climb trees. We saw plenty of bears but always from a distance, and therefore, the new camera (which has 2/3 of the power of the previous one), doesn't do them them justice. We followed with half a day at the Proboscis Sanctuary, setup at the end of a palm tree plantation. We had two feeding viewings, with lunch at a local resort, ...
