No baby news from Novosibirsk but Gerda looks very happy anyway. Of course, she has all the reason to be happy because there’s a real Winter now with lots of snow and ice.

Did you know that even the snow has a special smell? Ooooh, it smells so good!

A morning walk on the white stuff is always a great pleasure.

Kai is totally excited about all the ice in the pool! ­čÖé

He even wants to have his breakfast served on the ice. Of course, the ice keeps his food fresh all day long if he isn’t so hungry in the morning ….

Oh bear, this is soooo relaxing!

We polar bears always look gorgeous but you have to admit that the snow makes me look even more handsome!

Wawing to the visitors is one of our most important ‘duties’ – but we love to make our fans happy.

I must have a nap now!

Please, no more photos ….

…. I’m in the Napland now!

While Kai is napping you can admire the beautiful snow leopard.

Even he looks very satisfied with the snowy season.

Now Gerda and Kai are waiting for Father Frost and the Snow Maiden and wish all the readers of Knuti’s Weekly Magazine a Happy New Year!

On behalf of the readers and reporters of this magazine I wish the animals and their keepers in the Novosibirsk Zoo a happy new year!

Dear Anna! Thank you so much for all the wonderful photos during the year 2018! I wish you a great time with your animal friends in the zoo even in the year 2019!

    Gerda and Kai are looking great!
    Although winter isn┬┤t my favorite
    season, its very nice for the bears,
    to have so much ice and snow in
    their enclosure. The snow leopard
    looks majestic and very relaxed. ­čÖé

    Novosibirsk Zoo a happy new year –
    hoping, Anna also will keep us informed
    about the news from the Zoo in 2019 ! ­čÖé

    Hause im fernen China klar kommt und ob er gut untergebracht ist? ­čÖé

    Thank you for these wonderful pics of the winterly zoo in Novosibirsk.
    I┬┤m happy that Gerda and Kai are able to enjoy their favourite season to the fullest.

  9. Dear Anna, these two bears are looking gorgeous and they are certain that they will have snow. I love the pics of Kai wit his ears covered with snow. It looks not only funny but also very cute for an adult polar bear.
