Edinburgh Zoo has two sun bears named Somnang and Rotana. They came to live at Edinburgh Zoo in 2010.
Somnang and Rotana are brothers, and are approximately six years old. The boys are great friends and spend most of their time snoozing together and foraging for fruit and nuts.
Rotana, a popular modern Cambodian name, gets very excited, searching high and low to sniff out hidden goodies.
Somnang, meaning Lucky, takes things more slowly, usually meandering after Rotana who has put in the ground work.
They love nothing more than rolling around on their backs, licking honey and wrestling together in their swimming pool.
