Sloth bear (Melursus ursinus) at Wilpattu National Park on our first day. On a three day trip we encountered it an equal number of times! That too, after numerous visits over 15 years not seeing it at all! This individual, most likely a male juvenile, was taking advantages of rain showers that had encouraged termite activity.
