Miss Q took her first steps outdoors

Today it was time for Giovanna’s baby girl to make her entrĂ© in the tundra&taiga area in the Tierpark Hellabrunn.

Mama Giovanna made sure everything was OK Before she let her little daughter come out.

Oh bear, here she is! I’m sure the visitors and the media were immediately charmed by this young lady.

The baby hasn’t got a name yet so I call her simply Miss Q.

It’s obvious she has inherited the energy and the guts from her mother. She was very curious and examined the enclosure very thoroughly.

What interesting branches! I’m sure she already found some ‘play mates’. 🙂

Even the water looks exciting.

Here they are in all their glory – the beautiful mother with her lovely daughter.

Miss Q wasn’t afraid of the water but took a sip and I believe she even got her paws wet … 🙂

The keepers had placed some vegetables on a stone.

Miss Q was more interested in the surroundings than in the veggies. 🙂

That yellow thing looks nice …. but mama told Miss Q it was a small melon and carried it away.

Giovanna kept mowing the lawn for a long time. Maybe she was making a soft bed for future naps?

It was funny to see how Miss Q imitated her mother all the time.

You can see the whole story in this video.

The photos are screen shots from the video but I wanted to show them to you anyway. I hope I can soon publish ‘real’ photos from today’s outing.

  1. Wow! and Wow! again
    Liebe Anita
    Giovanna ist so gut und Tochter Q ist so wie ihre Mutter.
    Ich freue mich schon auf einer Reise nach Muenchen im Sommer.

  2. Dear Mervi!
    The pictures of Giovanna and her daughter are great.

  3. Liebe Mervi,

    die sreen shots sind dir wunderbar gelungen und das Video ist wunderbar.
    Wie mutig Miss Q ist und so souverän die Umgebung erforscht und auch
    vor dem Wasser keine Angst hat – toll, aber eigentlich kein Wunder bei der
    super Mama Giovanna so ein kesses Bärchen zu haben.

    Fein und vielen Dank fĂĽr den ersten Livebericht!

  4. Dear Mervi,
    thank you so much for posting these awsome pictures and the video! Just like every loving and caring polar-bear-mum, Giovanna at first was carefully checking, if there was a male polar bear around.. Then cute little Miss Q. came out. She is just adorable! Although she was very curious about her new enclosure, she preferred to stay near her mum.
    So funny when little one started to imitate Giovanna’s “excavations”!
    Bear hugs

  5. Miss Q war auch schon im Fernsehen zu bewundern,
    sie wagte sich sogar ein Stück ins flache Wasser. 🙂

  6. Ich wüsste gerne, warum Giovanna so hingebungsvoll zuerst die Grasnarbe zusammenkratzt und später den Mulch vor dem Eingang. Die Kratz- Nachahmung der Miss Q mit ihren kleinen Tatzen ist allerliebst und Giovanna kontrollierte auch mal eben den Geruch an der Türe zu Yoghis Gehege?

  7. Dear Giovanna & Baby Q,

    You are so awesome to watch and I’m super glad you are enjoying our outdoor life to the fullest.
    How did you manage to present your little one in a bearfectly white dress?
    I suppose you’ll host lots of guests since it’s Faschingsferien in Bavaria. Who would like to go skiing when he’s got a chance of admiring the two of you?

    Dear Mervi,
    Thank you for sharing this great Munich news.


  8. Awwwww……! and OOhhhhhhh…!
    What a lovely this is and active as beautiful and skilled mother GIOVANNA.

    As I said already earlier: it’s so interesting how the cubbiee-mothers check the air in all directions
    to make sure there is no danger for their precious little-ones.

    Simply wonderful animals ALL those polar bears in the world, wether female, male, cub, wether
    loner, mother and child, handraised or complete family!

    Thank you very much, dear MERVI for havin made so many searchs yesterday.
    Hope today information will come early so you can really relax during the rest of the day!

  9. Dear Mervi!
    Miss Q.- I always think on Desmond Llewelyn as Q. in the elder James Bond films when I hear that name… – is a sweet, well-nourished and curious little girl. I can almost hear the entranced sighs of the visitors when she came in sight.

    Giovanna again does a good job and is the familiar confident and beautiful polarbear queen as before!
    When she came out of the den and was sniffing the air, I suppose she was not only checking the surroundings for danger but also was enjoying every breath of fresh air and began to recapture her empire!

    I am delighted with that little white fluffy bear-child and her gorgeous mother.
    That was a good start of the day. Thank you!

  10. Thank you very much dear Mervi.
    Best wishes to Giovanna and her daughter.

  11. Nun hat auch Miss Q die frische Münchner Luft schnuppern dürfen. Ganz schön schön munter die Deern.
    Sie hat ihren ersten Auftritt grandios gemeistert.
    Danke liebe Mervi fĂĽr den schnellen Service.
    Auch das Video ist schön.

    Liebe GrĂĽĂźe

  12. One can only say, What a sweetie. Thanks dear Mervi for showing.
    Hugs Inge

  13. Miss Kju, Du kannst alle nur zu BegeisterungstĂĽrrmen hinreiĂźen.
