This series of posts is very educational, Geoff.  Chester Zoo clearly has some unusual animals!
From the first two photos this looks like a bear but #3 shows it's actually very different in terms of body shape.

These  bears are some of the smallest bears with that very distinctive marking ... He's a lucky one as in the wild they are often in danger ..

I have seen a programme a few years ago  about these bears ...they are anendangered  species I believe and are  poached often for their body parts  used in Asian medicine and  bear bile farming in China ...it is an  horrific practise so beware if you follow this link ....
