Chinese Zoo Denies Human In Bear Costume Rumors As People Ask Curious Questions


People are skeptical about the explanation provided by a Chinese zoo regarding accusations that their bear, named Angela, is actually a human in a costume.

Hangzhou Zoo had to refute embarrassing claims circulating on social media that their sun bear is not genuine.

Now, let's hear your thoughts on this matter.


The whole thing began with a video of the bear uploaded on Twitter's newly rebranded platform X, which quickly gained attention online. In the video, the bear seemed to interact with people in a remarkably 'human-like' way.

The particular movement of the bear that caught everyone's attention was when its back folds over its bottom.

In the viral footage, the curve of the bear's back looks incredibly human.


Some people are now speculating that the bear might be a person dressed up in an intricate costume, and the short clip is being used as evidence to support this idea.


"I wouldn't even be mad of it was someone in a suit. At least that's another bear free," one commenter expressed.

Another wrote: "Tell that bear pull his pants up."

A third person shared: "Thats pretty damn good sitting at the end of the clip, does it exactly how bears do. It would be hard for a man to sit back like that."

"The bears wearing skinny jeans like he's a fan of one direction," another joked.


"Of course it's someone in a bear suit, bears grab with their claws not their arms," a fifth claimed.


Well, I hate to break it, but it seems the bear is actually the real deal, as pointed out by some viewers.

One person commented, "That's a sun bear, and they always look like a person in a bear costume."

Another agreed, saying, "That's a real bear probably."

"Sun Bears are hilariously weird. Every picture nearly. They're doing something silly and weird."

"They walk upright A LOT. They look like people. It's eerie sometimes when you see them walking round upright."


So, it turns out the sun bear is the smallest type of bear, standing around 70 centimeters at the shoulder and weighing 25 to 65 kilograms.

They have a sturdy build, big paws, sharply curved claws, small rounded ears, and a short snout.

And to add to the whole story, Hangzhou Zoo made a quite bizarre post from the perspective of the sun bear named Angela. They said, "Some people think I stand like a person... It seems you don't understand me very well."


"When it comes to bears, the first thing that comes to mind is a huge figure and astonishing power… But not all bears are behemoths and danger personified."

So there you have it. The mystery of the bear's human-like appearance is solved!
