We’ve all been complaining of the soaring, unbearable temperatures! But look at these adorable sloth bears coated in fur... how are they coping?!

Wildlife SOS, that currently houses almost 400 sloth bears rescued from illegal ‘dancing bear’ practises, came up with innovative ways to give some respite to the furry creatures.

The most popular with the bears, unsurprisingly, are the ice fruit popsicles.

Aside from their frozen treats, the bears are being well taken care of in other ways too.

We provide the bears glucose water, electrolyte solution and herbal medication to help them stay hydrated.

There are even water sprinklers and splash pools for the bears to laze around in after they’ve had their fill of treats.

Let’s hope the regular dips and fruit popsicles are enough to keep these bears cool this summer!
