BFM's are thought to be a lesser known west European
relative of the Himalayan yeti, although their colouring and habits also give some
credence to the theory that they may be related to Pandas.
An endangered species they are now restricted to a
small corner of England where they live out a happy existence in one of the
remaining parts of what used to be Sherwood forest. As adults these are inquisitive,
friendly animals, incredibly placid and loving in nature however young BFM's are far

BFM's are vegetarian living on a diet of fruits, nuts
and herbs although all ages have a pronounced passion for honey. Males differ from
females only by the black markings on their paws, although older males do have a
tendency to loose their longer head tresses. Slow to mature BFM's mate for life and

offspring. They are not nocturnal although the young ones are so lively they keep
you up half the night and then refuse to get up until around lunch time - much the
same as our own offspring.
