Gillian Gibbons, 54, was being questioned at a police station in the capital Khartoum.
She had been working at one of the city's exclusive British schools for the past three months since giving up her job in Liverpool.
Police arrived at the old-fashioned brick and stone buildings of the Unity High School on Sunday to arrest Miss Gibbons after a complaint from parents that she had named the bear after Islam's most holy prophet Mohamed.
An angry mob shouted death threats as she was taken away.
