My 4th visit to NORA and RANZO in Vienna

Jan 30th, 2019 | By | Category: Nora and Ranzo in Vienna

30.1.2019 by Evi from Tallinn

I visited Tiergarten Schönbrunn in early January and found Nora very active ….

….. while Ranzo prefered to be inactive.

Ranzo seems to be thinking ‘Where does she get all that energy?’

One day, when Nora again played in the pool she managed to invite Ranzo to play with her, too.

The Bears dived and played in the deep pool for a long time – it was so wonderful to watch!

Nora was very active: she played all the time with the different toys, she loved to roll on the mulch and the Christmas trees.

I noticed the Romeo’s Julia’s relation is still there between the bears. They moved separately, but from time to time they met and showed some tender moments.

Here are my videos:

NORA is not tired and she can’t sleep. She wanted to play, but her partner Ranzo sleeps all the time. 🙂

Polar Bears love to roll on the ground, in the mulch and snow.

NORA has always loved to swim and play in the water. She didn’t have a deep pool in Tallinn, but now in Vienna she has all the possibilities to dive and play under the water. Her partner RANZO is a master in diving.

  1. Dear Evi,
    thank you for the pictures and videos of Nora and Ranzo. The underwater pictures are very good. Nora feels very well in the zoo in Vienna.

  2. Liebe Evi,

    deine Treue zu Nora berĂĽhrt mich sehr.
    Hast du manchmal beruflich in Wien zu tun oder treibt dich einfach die Sehnsucht so weit zu fahren?

    Nora und ihr VergnĂĽgen mit dem Tannenbaum erinnert an die Wonne von Katzen und ihr Geruchserlebnis mit Baldrian und Minze.
    Die Unterwasserspiele sind klasse und das Spielzeuggeflecht aus Feuerwehrschläuchen
    animiert zu allerlei Verrenkungen. Ich freue mich sehr, dass sich deine Nora in Wien so wohl fĂĽhlt und sie nach Herzenslust tief tauchen kann.

    Danke fĂĽr die bezaubernden Videos und liebe GrĂĽĂźe!

  3. Dear Evi

    Nora is such a playful girl and a handsome comrade for Ranzo.
    I think, they both are a new dream team! I most love the under-
    water video – its like a polarbear-ballett ! 🙂
    The photo, where Ranzo and Nora sleeping close together
    is so heartwarming! They are in love, there is no doubt. 🙂

    Chris 🙂

  4. In the first photo NORA’s nose looks quite mle-like but what a charming little loving lady she gives in the first photo with RANZO. For sure a prety couple!

    The playing periods are as lovely as ‘the tender moments’ are! Thank you very much, dear EI, for another charming report with beautiful photos from the love birds in SCHĂ–NBRUNN.

    Thank you MERVI for having taken everything so quickly in your ‘KWM’. For sure not anly work but this time alo lots of joy and fun – isn’t it!?

  5. 1st video: slow motion and dream-/fairy-tale-like!
    2nd video: quick motion and rather active to hectic!
    3rd video: romantic moments, again in rather slow motion!

    All the three are most lovely. Thank you very much again, dear EVI.

  6. Dear Evi,

    Nora and Ranzo are behaving like all the polar bear couples in the zoos. Nora is very active and plays with her toys almost all the time while Ranzo prefers to take it easy and just watch – and admire his beautiful girlfriend.

    Occasionally the turbo speeding Nora manages to make even Ranzo jump into the water and have some ‘wet fun’. Their water ballet is fantastic! The big bears move so graciously under the water. Incredible and fascinating!

    Nora looks like a small cubbie playing with the Christmas tree. No wonder Ranzo has lost his heart to her. 🙂

    Your photos of our Romeo and Juliet are soooo sweet! It’s truly heart warming to see them together.

    Thank you so much for sharing your great photos and videos with us!

    Hugs from Mervi

  7. Dear Evi!
    Thank you for your fabulous and enchanting pics and videos from the love couple Nora and Ranzo in Schönbrunn!
    It really must be love too, when you travel regularly such a long distance to visit your lovely Nora.
    And it seems worth it proved by your lively and touching photos. They and the former comments say it all.

    Nora is a playful and funloving bear lady and animates Ranzo quite stubbornly to join her. She is a clever girl and of course finally able to convince him…
    Nora and Ranzo are a dream couple among the polar bears and ” So Happy Together”


  8. Dear Britta-Gudrun,
    Dear Anke,

    I have no work in Vienna. The reason for the trip is always only my lovely Nora. She’s really very important to me and I just have to see her from time to time…

    Kind regards,

  9. Thanks for your answer Evi, that’s true love!
    Best regards

  10. Dear Evi!
    Thank you for your answer!
    I agree with Britta-Gudrun: this is real love. There are many people here who made a similar experience and understand very well what you´re feeling…
    All the best!


  11. Dear Mervi and Evi
    I can understand why Evi makes a special trip to see Nora (after all I go to Berlin to see Kati and to Aalborg to see the girls).
    Nora is a very special young lady who has clearly won Ranzo’s heart. The courtship ritual of the Polar Bear is well documented and Nora is making sure that Ranzo is fit and healthy to be a father to any cubs. She seems to have decided that he is, and he is obviously delighted to have such an intelligent and active mate.

  12. Dear Evi

    Nora feels really comfortable in Vienna. You can see that in her eyes.
    And the big teddy bear at her side adores his adventurous girl.
    Many thanks for the nice pictures and the great videos.


  13. Liebe Evi,

    das finde ich richtig super, dass Du Deinen Lieblingen treu bleibst, und sie wieder in Schönbrunn besucht hast.
    Und sehr schöne Fotos hat Du von Ranzo und Nora mitgebracht.

    Ein groĂźes Spielzeug-Sortiment haben die Beiden.

    Die Videos sind auch super.

    Danke und liebe GrĂĽĂźe. Danke auch an Mervi fĂĽrs Einstellen.


  14. Dear Evi, I can fully understand that you love Nora and why you want to visit her as often as you can. And I also think that Ranzo is understanding your feelings. Although he looks a little as a lazy potato, he knows that she will not run away from him.

  15. Dear Mervi,
    Thank you for publishing my article!

    Thank you, Dear All,
    for your kind comments – I really appreciate
    these very much!

    Happy wintertime and
