A Bear of Great Sincerity

A Bear of Great Sincerity

I enjoyed seeing Turbo, the very debonair Andean bear, out and about! They're also known as “spectacled bears” because of the distinctive facial coloration. When I was a kid, that name made an impression and I perceived the spectacled bear as being especially wise and sensible, like a kindly grandfather. I don’t know if Turbo holds the wisdom of the ages, but he definitely has a depth to his personality, and is quite a character!
