Ordinary Bears

Spectacled bear

The spectacled bear otherwise known as the Andean bear. The most famous being Paddington.  The spectacled bear’s vision changes dramatically with the seasons.  During the summer months, they need photo-sensitive lenses. While hibernating during the winter months, they need a soft, micro-bio mask. So once his Aunt Lucy went to live in the ‘Home for Retired Bears’ in Lima, Paddington moved to London where the gloomy weather is more conducive to better vision.
