Bear with glasses

The spectacled bear or Tremarctos ornatus is a small bear native to South America. You can still find it in some areas of Venezuela's Andes, like in Mérida, not far from the dwindling glaciers I wrote about. It is very much under threat, though.

The first video below shows mostly scenes from Peru, but similar scenes can be seen in Venezuela. The Venezuelan Andes, though, is separated from the Venezuelan Amazon by the Llanos.
The second video, also about the spectacled bear, is narrated by Stephen Fry.
