Two sweet brown bear cubbies in Copenhagen

When the brown bear cubbies born two years ago were moved to a zoo in France the parents could be together again. What a lovely reunion it was, too!

Since the beginning of the new year the keepers in the Copenhagen Zoo knew there were cubs in the female brown bear’s den. Now we know two cubs were born.

The cubs only weigh about 500 grams when they are born and it usually takes a couple of months before they’re big enough to go outside their den.

On the 15th of March it was time to chip the cubbies before they are too big.

Mama bear was locked in a neighbouring enclosure so the keeper Mette Kroll could crawl into the den and bring the cubbies out. The vet Mads Bertelsen was ready to chip them and he could also see the both bear cubbies are males.

The whole procedure was done as quickly as possible. The cubs were amazingly calm all the time and soon they could join their mother. They will spend most of the time indoors but soon even the visitors can say ‘welcome to the world’ to the sweeties.

The bear boys will stay with their mother about two years.

  1. Liebe Mervi,
    wie ich die Pfleger beneide wenn sie die kleinen süßen Fellbündel im Arm haben dürfen.
    Ich wünsche den beiden, gute Zeit mit ihrer Mutter!
    Danke Dir für diese schönen News aus Kopenhagen.
    Liebe Grüße Moni K

  2. Die kleinen Bärchen sind gar nicht mehr
    so klein, wenn man sie in den Armen der
    Pfleger sieht. Ich hoffe, sie haben ein
    schönes Leben und man findet später
    einen guten Zoo für sie! Das Video
    schaue ich heute Abend. 🙂

  3. Liebe Mervi,

    ein Wiedersehen mit süßen Folgen sind diese Schätzchen!
    @ MoniK, schau dir mal die Krallen der Kleinen an, da könnte die
    Umarmung schnell blutig enden.
    Bei diesen Kletterhilfen versteht man, dass die kleinen Bärchen im
    Nullkommanix auf den Bäumen Schutz suchen, wenn Gefahr droht.

    Jetzt wünsche ich den beiden erstmal eine gesundes Wachstum!

    Mervi, herzliche Dank und liebe Grüße !
    Britta-Gudrun

  4. Och Gottele – was die armen Putzelchen doch immer zu Beginn ihres Lebens über sich ergehen lassen müssen! . . . . Mama was also not amused. Was she!??

    Thanks to you, dear MERVI, and COPENHAGEN ZOO for having presented the two ‘proppere’ cuties to us.

    Greetings to INGE aus Cph! – Did you already meet the two ‘newcomers’?

  5. Dear Mervi,

  6. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for bringing us the pics of these adorable, cute and cuddly Teddybears.

    They are really a lovely result of their parents love affair!

    Hopefully they will fast forget this incident of getting a chip and being weighed.
    I felt sorry for them since they looked helpless and frightened.

    I wish them a long happy and healthy life.

    Hugs
    Anke

  7. Dear Mervi,

    Thank you for this report!
    So sweet little bears! It’s nice to have two of them – they can play together. Hopefully the zoo guests will see them soon.
    I wish them a happy life!

    With greetings
    Evi

  8. Thanks dear Mervi for showing.

    Their mother is out in the enclosure. The two small ones have I not seen yet.

    Hugs from a grey and soon again cold Copenhagen
    Inge

  9. Dear Mervi!
    The cubs are lovely. I wish them a long life
    Hugs

  10. Die Mutter war not amused, als sie ihre Kinder nicht fand…
    Ich hoffe, die Teddies haben die Prozedur gut überstanden.

  11. Dear Mervi
    With so few zoos keeping Brown Bears, it is good to see some new arrivals. I suppose that forest parks rather than urban zoos are better homes for the brown bears, and it will be Interesting to see what is planned for the cubs.

  12. Liebe Mervi,

    das sind ja schon schöne wohl genährte Bärchen, un so niedlich. Und ihren Personalausweis haben sie jetzt auch, in Form eines Chips.

    Ich wünsche den kleinen Brownies alles Gute für die Zukunft.

    Liebe Grüße
    Monika
