Abstract: The distribution of sun bears (Helarctos malayanus) is limited in China with very low populations in wild. The distribution of sun bear in Tibet is disputed, with only a single specimen recordfrom 1906. In the Second National Survey of Terrestrial Wildlife Resources, we photographed a sun bear in Jilong county, Tibet. The photo confirmed the existence of sun bears in Tibet, expanding its apparent distribution range, and we propose potential wider distribution region in China.

Key words: Sun bear, Tibet, distribution
