Snow is compact water!

Our little polar bear cub is very curious and examines the enclosure with great energy and enthusiasm.

We have emptied the pool in the enclosure from water and instead filled it with straw. In the wild a polar bear cub doesn’t want to go near water at this age. That’s why we’ll wait a while until we fill the pool with water again.

The snow is ‘compact water’ so making friends with the white stuff is good start before the swimming lessons begin. 🙂

What a difference in size! It’s amazing this tiny baby will be a white giant ….

  7. Dear Mervi and Inge
    If all goes well I hope to get to Copenhagen before Midday next Tuesday and see Lynn and the baby. If not I will stay over the next day and try again before going on to Aalborg. I will then try and see them again on Saturday before I go.

    Thank you so much !

  9. This polar bear baby is really one of the most enthusiast babies I have ever see pics of. Everything and all needs to be examined, checked and explored. And baby is soo cute.
