The polar bear baby in the Izhevsk Zoo is very special because the parents Dumka and Aion are both born in the wild in the Wrangel Island.

In 2015 Dumka had twins with the male Nord. Belij and Szerij are now in the Budapest Zoo.

The mother and the baby are doing fine as you can see in the video. I made some screen shots so the photos are very unsharp.

Dumka’s cub looks quite big already.

  1. MERVI – das Kind sieht schon recht groß aus.
    Ich drücke Dumka die Daumen! 🙂
    Leider kann ich das Video nicht sehen.

    It is astonishing how successful the Russian Zoos are in breeding their Polar Bears, despite conditions that are so basic compared with the West. However, the soul of the Russian keepers seems to be in harmony with the big white bears, who are so much bigger and fluffier than their Canadian or Norwegian equivalents.
    Sounds crazy I know but I love these big strong fluffy bears and the keepers who care for them

  3. Dear Mervi,
    Dumka’s baby looks strong. I keep my fingers cross for Dumka and her baby.

  4. Liebe Mervi!

    Alles Gute für Dumka und das Kleine, es sieht sehr gut aus!

    Liebe Grüße, Erika

  5. Dear Mervi!
    Wow, that´s a lot of hay in the den of Dumka and her baby. The keepers made it quite cosy for them.
    It seems the little one is doing well and I´m keeping my fingers crossed for mother and child.
    Thank you for the update!


  6. Inzwischen hab ich das Video auf einer anderen Plattform gesehen.
    Das Kind hat ein lautes Stimmchen und ist schon recht beweglich.
    Dumka hat die Ruhe weg. 🙂

  7. Photos taken out of the video may be ‘unsharp’ but they show cute scenes with Mama DUMKA and her handsome, obviously well growing baby!

    Thank you very much, dear MERVI, for having brought the information and video of the IZHEVSK ZOO (with the pics excerpt by you from the video) to us via ‘KWM’.

    I thought ‘NORD’ was the husband of ‘NOEL’ in Copenhagen . . .
    It’s really very difficult to hold trace on all the various polar bears and zoos!!

  8. Liebe Mervi,
    Dumka hat schon ein recht agiles Kind und ich wünsche beiden alles Gute!
    Liebe Grüße Moni K
