The Bare Bears of Leipzig Zoo

via GeekologieDlisted and the Daily Mail

Vets have been left baffled by the sudden hair loss of  the three female Andean/Spectacled bears who live at the Leipzig Zoo. Some experts believe it could be due to a genetic defect though the animals do not seem to be suffering from any other affliction. The bears, which originate from South America, normally have fluffy dark brown fur and would now be growing a thicker fur coat to keep warm during the winter. But instead, Lolita, Bianca & Dolores have developed rashes and inflammations on their skin. Unfortunately for the bears, their lack of hair has been pulling in the crowds who want to catch of glimpse of their bareness.
