This nice fellow is welcoming the visitors to the Zoo Novosibirsk. I guess he’ll be having busy Days soon when Gerda presents her twins to the visitors.

Gerda’s twins are doing fine. They are growing and getting stronger all the time.

It’s so fun to have a play mate. It even allows mama Gerda to have some time for herself.

The twins love to play on the straw covered floor in their den ….

…. but, of course, it was a big adventure to come out for the first time and discover snow!

Gerda’s babies are lucky to have snow under their paws at their first outing. Many other cubbies have to wait until next Winter.

One of them seems to be quite cautious while the other is curiously examining the enclosure.

What a beautiful and good mother Gerda is!

She must be very proud of her twins – and the babies must be very proud of their wonderful mama. You can see more the family in the video in the end of this article.

While Gerda was taking care of the twins Kai entertained himself playing in the water with a red barrel.

    Und sie kommen tatsÀchlich schon

  2. Liebe Mervi,
    liebe Anna,

    das ist ein hĂŒbsches Video mit zwei munteren BĂ€rchen, denen es im Heu ihrer Höhle
    genauso gut gefÀllt wie im Schnee.
    Papa Kai hat auch seinen Spaß, also alles beszens!

    Liebe GrĂŒĂŸe

  3. Dear Mervi and Anna!
    That was quite the right weather for little polar bears to leave the den.
    They are as cute as all little ones of this species and look funloving and feisty. It is wonderful they can still play with each other in the snow.
    Kai seems to love his red barrel and presents it after playing with it and a slight shape-changing proud to his visitors…
    Great pics! Thank you for sharing them with us!


  4. Dear Mervi!
    Dear Anna!

    Thank you for the wonderful Photos from Gerda and her twins. The cubbies are very cute, like all polar bear Babies.
    The Photos of Kai are nice too ??????

  5. Dear Mervi and Anna

    Those Russian bears do it again. Two super big and fluffy cubs. Of course with parents like Gerda and Kai we should not be surprised.
    It is a pity that some enterprising and wealthy Russians cannot establish a facility like Doncaster or Kincraig in Russia. Russian bears are wonderful and deserve to have a good home in the Rodina!

  6. Da wird Gerda alle Pfoten voll zu tun haben mit den beiden Pelzkugeln. Danke fĂŒr die lieben Bilder und Alles Gute!

    Liebe GrĂŒĂŸe, Erika

  7. Liebe Mervi, liebe Anna,

    nun sind Gerda und ihre sĂŒĂŸen Zwillinge auch schon draußen. Da merkt man erst, wie die Zeit vergeht. Und sie haben das große GlĂŒck, noch den ersten Schnee ihres Lebens zu genießen.

    Schöne Fotos sind das. Und auch das Video ist klasse.

    Wunderschöne Bilder auch von Kai mit dem roten Kanister.

    Liebe GrĂŒĂŸe

  8. Dear Anna, I immediately believe that you must be more than proud of these funny lively twins. But of course, they both have wonderful parents and so this may not be a surprise.

  9. Liebe Mervi und liebe Anna,
    Gerda hat uns alle ĂŒberrascht und jetzt hat sie diese sĂŒĂŸen BĂ€rchen prĂ€sentiert.
    Ist eine ganz nette EisbÀrenfamilie und ich verfolge alles auf Facebook.
    Vielen Dank fĂŒr immer aktuelle Bilder auch hier in KWM von diesen bezaubernden EisbĂ€ren in Novosibirsk.
    Liebe GrĂŒĂŸe Moni K
