The polar bear girls in Baltimore

29.1.2019 – Photos by Andrew King

We don’t see so often photos of the polar bears in the zoos in USA so I’m glad Andrew King sent me pics of Amelia Gray and Neva.

It’s difficult to keep count of all the polar bears so here’s some information in a nut shell.

Amelia Gray was born on the 8th of November 2016 in the Columbus Zoo, Ohio. Her mother is Anana and father Nanuq who sadly died in 2017.

Neva is Amelia Gray’s half sister – they have the same father (Nanuq). The mother is Aurora who gave birth to twins on the 14th of November 2016. Neva’s brother Nuniq now lives in the Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison, Wisconsin.

In October 2018 Amelia Gray and Neva came to their current home in the Baltimore Zoo, Maryland.

It looks like Neva prefers the cappuccino look while Amelia Gray wears the more traditional white fur. 🙂

  2. Wonderful pictures! Thank you AndrewKING. Thank you MERVI (if I remember it right we talked already about this handsome family somehow somewhere!).

  3. Liebe Mervi,

    deine internationale Kontakte sind sehr umfangreich und vielseitig!
    Schön, auf diese Weise auch hin und wieder von den Bären aus Übersee zu hören.
    Leider gibt es keinen Austausch zwischen amerikanischen und europäischen Bären,
    obwohl das dem Genpool gut tun würde.
    Die beiden Jungbären sehen prima aus und Mut zur Farbe haben ja viele Bären!

    Danke für deinen Bericht aus Übersee und liebe Grüße!

  4. Dear Mervi !
    Thank you for bringing us the news about Amelia Gray and Neva.
    Thanx to Andrew King for his great photos.
    They are beautiful young polar bear girls and seem to be good-tempered and funloving.

    It´s remarkable that so many of the white giants, whether girls or boys, like to apply make up…
    But whether white, brown or even black, we love them anyway.

    Hugs

  5. It is nice to see the girls doing so well. I am sure Amelia Gray is happy to have a playmate now.
    Thanks for the great photos, Andrew.

  6. Das sind sehr hübsche Eisbär Mädels. 🙂
    Ich erinnere mich noch an die Geburt der
    Zwei mit dem selben Vater. Der Zoo in
    Baltimore kann sich glücklich schätzen,
    Neva und Amelia Gray zu beherbergen!

  7. Dear Mervi and Andrew
