About Madu

[MA’dyoo]/noun/ a Malaysian word meaning “honey”

Like most Sun Bear cubs, Madu is lively and rarely sits still. While he scampers through the forest near his home in Malaysia, the little bear loves to imagine adventures for himself, especially adventures from the Bible. His mother often finds Madu among the trees, pretending to be Moses parting the Red Sea or Noah giving orders to the zebras from the upper deck of the ark.
