8.4.2018 – Photos by Jeanette Johnsen

It was quite a while ago we saw photos of Malik and her daughters Nuka and Quilaq but now Jeanette kindly gave me permission to show you some of her excellent photos.

The girls start the day with a little stretching and cleaning the paws is also on the schedule.

A gentle hug is never wrong!

Even mama Malik deserves a morning hug. In this photo we can see clearly that mama’s milk bar has frequent visitors. 🙂

The family seems to be wondering what to do today.

Follow me girls! It’s time to say ‘davs’ to our visitors.

Oh bear, it takes a while until we’re totally awake ….

Where are my white kids?

Well, Malik knows that dirty bears are happy bears! 🙂

The daughters are nicely cappuccino coloured. Maybe that’s the latest polar bear fashion …..

Shall we jump in?

Hello visitors! Nice to meet you all!

There are lots of toys but sometimes it’s nice just to sit there and pose for the visitors’ cameras.

This ball is quite a challenge but, of course, we polar bears can play with it without problems!

Prophiles – like mother, like daughter!

A snack every now and then keeps a bear going

Mama, would you like a bite? A bite of the meat, not of me, heheee …. 🙂

 photo 29351997_10215778185953448_120809696381129834_o.jpg

Mama needs the meat because she must have lots of nourishment in order to be able to feed us. We have grown but we still need mama’s milk.

No snacks in the world  are as delicious as mama’s milk!

  1. Liebe Mervi,

    ja, seit dem Tod von Lars im Oktober letzten Jahres hat man kaum noch etwas von
    Maliks und seinen Töchtern in Aalborg gehört. Umso erfreulicher sind die heutigen Fotos, für die
    wir Jeanette Johnson sehr herzlich danken.
    Ich finde die Steinwüste dort nach wie vor grässlich, zumal man immer wieder in anderen Zoos
    beobachten kann, wie genussvoll und gerne sich Bären auf weichen Untergrund oder in einem
    Mulchbett wälzen.

    Die beiden Jungtiere sehen prima aus und dein Text ist wie gewohnt sehr unterhaltend und schön
    formuliert. Ich hoffe, dass die beiden letzten Nachkommen von Lars dereinst einen etwas “grĂĽneren” Zoo
    als neues Zuhause bekommen werden.

    Herzliche GrĂĽĂźe
    Britta-Gudrun

  2. Dear Mervi,
    Dear Jeanette,

    Thank you for this lovely story with these wonderful pictures!
    All the three bears look relaxed and happy.
    I love the cappuccino coloured daughters so much! They look great! I think their mother Malik is proud of them.

    With greetings
    Evi from Tallinn

  3. Liebe Mervi und Jeanette

    Es ist nett, mal wieder Fotos aus Aalborg zu sehen.
    Die Kinder sind groĂź geworden, aber Mamas Milchbar
    ist immer noch willkommen. Schöne Aufnahmen ! 🙂

    Herzliche GrĂĽĂźe
    Chris 🙂

  4. dear Mervi and dear Jeanette,
    thank you so much for publishing these wonderful pictures from Aalborg. Malik has two sweet doughters, they are looking very lovely and with your words dear Mervi I can imagine how they live together with Mama. I wish the bear girls and Malik further a good time with much joy and love. When I think these are the doughters of Lars, this is so touching….
    dear greetings
    Filomena

  5. Fantastic photos, Jeanette. I have spent so many hours and days there, that when I see the photos, it is as if I am standing in front of this lovely family. Malik and her cubs are special. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Thank you Mervi and Jeanette
    The pictures show how much fun Malik and her girls have and how well they can be seen by their visitors.
    The Zoo in Aalborg is built on a hillside which allows the pool to be deep and viewed on all sides.
    Malik and her girls are clearly depressed and need to be rescued by people who have never visited Aalborg. Shame thr photographs do not support this argument.

  7. Liebe Mervi und liebe Jeanette,
    gut sehen sie aus die 3 Eisbären im Aalborg Zoo und ich hoffe daß sie weiterhin ein gutes Leben haben.
    Vielen Dank für die schönen Bilder und die witzigen Texte dazu.
    Liebe GrĂĽĂźe Moni K

  8. Dear Mervi and Jeanette!
    Thank you for bringing us these lively pics of Malik and her girls with quite affectionate and humorous subtitles!
    The bear ladies look great, whether white or cappuccino coloured!

    I agree with Britta- Gudrun and don´t want to repeat what has already been said.

    I am moved at the thought that these fabulous young polar bear girls are the last children of our beloved Lars and that he lives on in his wonderful offspring: Anori, Fiete, Nuka and Quilak.

    Hugs
    Anke

  9. Dear Jeanette, dear Mervi!
    Thank you for the pictures of Malik and her girls. They look very well. I find the enclosure not nice.
    Nuka and Quilak are the daughters of our beloved Lars. I hope they will be happy and healthy.
    Hugs
    Ludmila

  10. Das ist ein sehr nettes ‘TrĂĽppchen’. Ganz entzĂĽckend die Schmusebilder zu Anfang und das Bild der bildhĂĽbschen ‘feeding Mama’ gefällt mir auch besonders (wie sie in die Kamera guckt!).

    Vielen Dank Jeanette und Mervi fĂĽr diese erbaulichen Bilder und Texte!

  11. Liebe Mervi,

    auch ich freue mich sehr, nach langer Zeit mal wieder Fotos von Malik und ihren beiden Töchter zu sehen. Ich bin erstaunt, wie groß die Beiden inzwischen schon sind.

    Das Gehege ist wirklich alles andere als schön.
    Leider haben wir ja die Berliner Eisbären, aber auch die Eisbären in Wuppertal, auch noch nie Gras oder Naturboden unter ihren Pfoten spüren dürfen.

    Danke an Jeanette Johnson fĂĽr die Ăśbersendung der aktuellen Fotos.

    Liebe GrĂĽĂźe
    Monika
