When Paddington Bear famously arrived on a cold and rainy day at the famous London train station which gave him his name, he’d travelled from the cloud forests of deepest, darkest, Peru.

In fact, Paddington Bear is a Spectacled Bear, the only South American species of bear. These bears are some of the most elusive animals in this part of the world so it is always a great moment when they are caught on camera, even more so when it is out in the open and with the family. The attached photos of Paddington Bear’s cousins were taken in Ecuador near the Cayambe Coca Reserve not too far from Quito.
