Vivian is a female Malayan sun bear. She was born on Oct. 10, 1985 at the Audubon Park Zoo in New Orleans, LA. She arrived at the Oregon Zoo on March 12, 1986. Vivian can often be seen asleep in a tree perch.
Vivian was hand-raised because her mother was not successful at raising her young. She has spots on her crescent chest mark and a noticeable scar on her backside. Vivian has white nails while the zoo's other sunbear, Jody, has black nails.
