A study in white fluffiness

20.4.2018 – Photos by Anna Novikova

Privet! Hello! I’m your friend Gerda in the Novosibirsk Zoo. The Spring has come here, too, and the snow is slowly melting away. I’ll tell you more about it in the next report but this time I want to show you some nice photos Anna has taken of me.

During the Winter time my fur is very white and fluffy. I hope it will look as good even during the Spring and the Summer!

This is my queen like pose.

You must admit I’m very WFR (White, Fluffy and Roundish) in this photo!

Oh yeah, I look great even if I say so myself. A beautiful lady is allowed to be a little proud of her good looks!

I’m very particular about my pawicure. As you can see my paws are extremely attractive!

Of course, I must present my male companion Kai to you, too! He doesn’t look so bad either. 🙂

I let him believe he’s the King of our enclosure but let me assure you I’m the one who rules!!

Finally a couple of pics of our son Rostik. It’s soon time for him to leave Novosibirsk and I hope he will find a good home.

Rostik is such a handsome guy and I will miss him but I know I have to let him go. Just like the birds leave their nests even the polar bear kids leave their parents when they’re old enough.

I hope you have enjoyed watching this selection of Anna’s excellent photos.

  1. Dear Mervi and Anna
    Thank you for this visit to Gerda Kai and Rostik.
    Gerda is right to be proud of their appearance.
    Big fluffy and happy.

  2. Dear Mervi and Anna!
    Gerda, Kai and Rostik are indeed big, fluffy, well-nourished, with a wonderful fur and look quite happy .
    Rostik is already very big considering his age – just look at his paws! – and will probably grow to a white giant.
    Hopefully he will go to an appropriate good new home! I wish him and his parents all the best

    Thank you for bringing us the pics of these three marvellous polar bears in the Zoo Novosibirsk.


  3. Dear Anna

    The bears in Novosibirsk look great.
    They all have such a thick fur. I hope,
    the Zoo staff will find a good new home
    for Rostik !

    Chris 🙂

  4. Mervi and friends, thank you very much!

  5. Dear Anna!
    Gerda is a very good looking lady. Kai is a king, but Gerda knows how to be a Queen. 🙂
    Rostik is a wonderful boy.

  6. Dear Mervi and Anna

    Wonderful pictures of wonderful bears.

    Thanks for showing.

    Hugs Inge

  7. Liebe Mervi,

    Gerda auf dem Catwalk ist dir excellent gelungen!
    Eine wirklich prachtvolle Lady ist sie und von Anna bestens in Szene gesetzt.
    Mit anderen Worten; es sind wunderschöne Portraits und die Lady strotzt
    zu recht vor Selbstbewusstsein.

    Kai steht ich in nichts nach und Rostik ist ein Charmingboy, dem ich
    von Herzen ein schönes neues Zuhause wünsche.

    Dir und Anna vielen Dank für dieses schöne Album aus Novosibirsk
    und liebe Grüße!

  8. Liebe Anna, liebe Mervi,

    danke für die schönen Fotos von Gerda, Kai und Rostik.

    Rostik ist ein kleines süßes Pummelchen. Daher wirken wahrscheinlich seine Beinchen etwas kurz. Er erinnerte mich kurz an Antonia.

    Liebe Grüße

  9. Dear Anna, all three bears are WFR and looking great just like only Russian polar bears can look. I am wishing the young boy Rostik a wonderful new home and house, with good company.

  10. Liebe Mervi und liebe Anna,
    Gerda ist eine ganz hübsche und mit Kai verträgt sie sich sehr gut.
    Leider ist Rostik immer noch vor Ort und ich wünsche dem “Kleinen” einen Zoo wo er mehr Platz hat.
    Danke sehr für die schönen Bilder aus Novosibirsk.
    Liebe Grüße Moni K
