Wilbär’s 10th birthday was celebrated today with a magnificent cake and lots of gifts in Orsa. The cake was made of ‘knäckebröd’, fish, yoghurt with a water melon/coconut topping. Sounds really yammy!

Of course, there were even many beautifully wrapped gifts to the birthday bear.

No doubt that the cake was appreciated! 🙂

Wilbär managed to keep his face very clean …..

After the excellent meal it was time to open the parcels.

I don’t know what was in them but this one seems to be very interesting!

Ewa couldn’t participate in the birthday party because she has retired to her den.

It remains to be seen if Ewa has a tiny surprise in her den but the Persian leopards had a wonderful surprise for the staff in Orsa.

A sweet Persian leopard cub was born on the 3rd of October. This week it was time for the baby to meet the snow for the first time. The cubbie love the white stuff and was having lots of fun outdoors.

The Amur tigers love the Winter season, too.

They have lots of space on the ‘Tiger Mountain’.

This snow leopard has made himself comfortable on this ‘chateau’. 🙂

  1. Dear Mervi
    This is a lovely reminder of how Orsa
    is just the place for Winter.
    I hope Wilbaer’s two special keepers in
    Stuttgart are able to see how fine he looks
    and how carefully he opens his presents.
    The new Persian Leopard baby seems delighted
    with the snow. The Tiger Mountain is very Siberian.

  2. Dear Mervi

    Wilbär had a nice birthday party.
    The cake looks very yummy. 🙂
    I wish Ewa best of luck. The
    little leopard is cute. 🙂

    Chris 🙂

  3. Liebe Mervi,

    Wilbär wurde reich beschenkt und hat die Überraschungen sichtlich genossen.
    Mit der Tonne ist er sehr geschickt umgegangen.
    Auf das Geheimnis von Ewa bin ich gespannt, immerhin hat die Schneeleopardin es ihr
    vorgemacht, worauf wir im Frühjahr warten.

    Danke für den schönen Geburtstagsbericht aus Orsa und liebe Grüße!

  4. Dear Mervi!
    Wilbär is an impressive male now. He got many nice presents on his birthday. I hope Ewa will get a baby this year.
    The young Persian leopard is a sweetie.


    Ich wünsche Wilbär alles Gute zum Geburtstag. So viele schöne Geschenke, und er darf sie selbst auspacken. Auch die Torte sieht lecker aus.
    Ich bin immer wieder begeistert, was sich manche Zoos für Ihre Zöglinge einfallen lassen.

    Liebe Mervi,
    danke fürs Einstellen der wunderschönen Fotos. Der kleine Leopard ist supersüß. Wie es aussieht, hat er auch Spaß am Schnee.
    Auch das Video von Wilbär und der Tonne ist schön.
    Warten wir es ab, ob Ewa uns demnächst eine Überraschung präsentiert.

    Liebe Grüße

  6. Happy birthday dear Wilbär.

    Dear Mervi, wonderful pictures !!!!!The leopardcub is cute. (all cats are of course wonderful).
    Oh,I remember Wilbär as a little one, years ago.

    Hugs Inge

  7. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for the latest report about Wilbär!
    What a nice birthday party he had with everything it needs, quite right for a male polar bear who wants to have fun too: snow and frost, the loving attention of his keepers, a big and tasty cake and nicely packaged gifts.
    He was obviously delighted and took possession of his gifts immediately.

    Feline predators in the snow are always a special view. Just beautiful!
    The little one of the Persian leopards looks so sweet and tiny. It is a cutie-pie indeed!


  8. Lieber Wilbäär!
    Nachträglich Alles Gute zum geburtstag.



  9. Liebe Mervi,
    tolle Aufnahmen aus dem Orsa Park, Wilbär hatte eine leckere Überraschung.
    Aber für mich ist das Leopardenbaby der Hingucker, so niedlich das Kleine im Schnee.
    Vielen Dank für die schönen Bilder vom Eisbärparadies in Orsa.
    Liebe Grüße Moni K
