Chester zoo has some new members to its animal family

Chester Zoo has released pictures of their newest additions to their family, twin Andean bear cubs.

Patcha and Mateo and the brother and sister pair, the first Andean bears to be born in the UK ever!

Andean bears are also called Spectacled bears due to the markings on their face.

Look out for an animal fact file on Andean bears.

The bears were born in January and spent their first months with their mum. They are now old enough to explore their enclosure and play outside.

Did you know that Paddington is an Andean bear, from darkest Peru, as these bears are native to South America?
