The sloth bear was an orphan from the chapter 'The Bond of Love'. Initially he was afraid of the narrator and his wife, but gradually formed an inseparable bond with the narrator's wife. The bear was a lovable creature, who being a Bear, did not seem harmful. He was very friendly with every person of the house. He was a very playful and carefree pet. He also used to eat A LOT! Be it milk, porridge, chillies, eggs sweets and even old engine oil and poison! He was attached emotionally to the wife. All and all, he was a sweet, adorable and mischievous pet bear.
Hope this helps you!

The sloth bear (Melursus ursinus) is an insectivorous bear species native to the Indian subcontinent. It is listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List, mainly because of habitat loss and degradation.[1] It has also been called labiated bear because of its long lower lip and palate used for sucking insects.[2] Compared to brown and black bears, the sloth bear is lankier, has a long, shaggy fur and a mane around the face, and long, sickle-shaped claws. It evolved from the ancestral brown bear during the Pleistocene and through convergent evolution shares features found in insect-eating mammals.
