Yesterday it was time for the Zoo Sauvage de Saint-Félicien to let us know the gender of the two polar bear cubs born in last November. Who could be more suitable to deliver the information than papa Jelle! In the video you can see how he did it.

Aisaqvak’s baby boy is already big enough to come out of the den and play with the snow the keepers have brough him and his mama. Look how elegantly he stands on his hind legs!

He can also run in turbo speed!

It’s wonderful to feel the snow under the small paws.

The tender moment with mama was interrupted when the cubbie discovered an interesting round thingie.

The little guy is very curious.

Milak’s baby is a couple of weeks younger than his half brother but even he has had a ‘taste of snow’.

However, it’s more secure to stay close to mama indoors for the time being.

Soon enough even Milak’s son will be enjoying the world outside the den.

There will be a name voting soon. Maybe it will be papa Jelle who will reveal the names, too …..

Jelle is a gorgeous male and very proud of his beautiful kids. OK, I know he most probably isn’t aware of the cubs but it’s a nice thought ….. 🙂

  1. Dear Mervi
    Well, its been a while since we had a pair of boys. I hope that they will eventually get good homes, though if the worse comes to the worst, Doncaster or Kincraig might be able to take them.

  2. So cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank you, dear Mervi


  3. Die Zwei sind ja wirklich niedlich
    und schon so aktiv – die Mütter
    haben alle Tatzen zu tun, ihre
    Kinder im Zaum zu halten. 🙂

  4. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for introducing these two little Canadian polar bear boys to us.
    They are so cute and charming and my heart sings when I look at the pics and watch the video.
    My favourite photos are No.3 with the upstanding little one of Aisaqwak and No.10, the enchanting portrait of Milak´s son. Simply wonderful!
    I wish them both and their parents the best of luck.


  5. Die beiden sind so suess, das Bild mit Mamas Tatze ist grossartig. Danke fürs Zeigen!

    Liebe Grüße, Erika

  6. Liebe Mervi,

    danke für`s Zeigen der Fotos, auch von diesen süßen Bärchen.

    Eine super Idee mit den Kartons, das Geschlecht der Kleinen bekannt zu geben.
    Und Papa Jelle hat auch etwas davon.

    Liebe Grüße

  7. Liebe Mervi,

    Liebe Grüße Moni K
