Imaq – the fearless Viking Princess

Lynn’s daughter is running wild all over the enclosure so sometimes her mama has difficulties locating the kid. Gone are the days when Imaq seemed to be a little afraid of water!

Have you seen a white furry baby girl?


Occasionally the ‘wild thing’ stops and shows her treasures to mama.


But within seconds’ flat Imaq is running here, there and everywhere with her barrel.



Oh bear, how did the barrel end in the water?


There’s no trace of hesitation when Imaq jumps after her toy! The Danish polar bear girl is a really a fearless Viking Princess! 🙂

Imaq must know the enclosure very well now because she knows exactly where the best spot for diving is for her. The highest rocks are still too much even for this sporty girl.


Getting the barrel to the land …. and then the ‘show’ begins again.

  1. A ‘tiny polar bear baby princess’ but obviously with LOTS of power and energy!

    Dear little IMAQ, I am sure you are the most popular and GREATest ‘VIwhatever’ (VIP, VIB . . .) in whole COPENHAGEN! . . . And I am quite sure I know already your biggest fan. Starts with an an ‘I’ as your own name, isn’t it!? . . . Am I right, dear ‘INGE aus Cph’?

    Her running and climbing skills are at least as astonishing and impressing as those of the other ‘Perpetuum Mobile’ in Berlin (called ‘HERTHA’ or ‘HEARTha’ as MERVI prefers to wtite and say! 🙂 )

    Thank you MERVI for having brought this entertaining press release with pics and video from Copenhagen Zoo to your readers/watchers in KWM.

  2. Actually Imaq has grown a lot, as Mother Lynn is very big and makes her look small.
    She is really courageous as I found even when she was just peeping out from a rock in March.

  3. Dear Mervi!
    Imaq is a very active girl. I think she would like to play with Hertha.

  4. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for bringing us these cute impressions of a frisky and vivid polar bear child!
    Beautiful Lynn can be proud of her daughter for many reasons!
    There is no comparison to the shy little bear afraid of water. Now Imaq is like the turbo bear cub in Berlin.
    Once let them off the leash …


  5. Dear Mervi, thanks a lot for showing little Imaq and her patient mother. Imaq is a very sporty and charming little polarbear.

    You are right Dumba. I do find her wonderful.

    Have a nice weekend all of you.

    Hugs from Copenhagen

  6. Liebe Mervi,

    danke fĂŒr die neuesten Fotos und das tolle Video aus Copenhagen.

    Die kleine Imaq ist ja auch recht munter. SĂŒĂŸ wenn die kleinen BĂ€rchen einen Bauchklatscher ins Wasser machen. Das scheint ihnen viel Spaß zu machen, das sehe ich auch bei Hertha.
    Das Video ist super.
    Schade, dass man immer nur einen sehr kleinen Teil der Anlage sieht. Oder ist die Anlage nur so klein?
    Immer wenn ich Bilder aus Copenhagen sehe, denke ich, unsere Anlagen in Zoo und Tierpark sind gar nicht so schlecht. Jedenfalls im Vergleich zu Copenhagen.

    Liebe GrĂŒĂŸe

  7. Dear Monika,

    The old polar bear enclosure where Lynn and Imaq are staying is awful although the keepers have tried to make it cosier. It hurts to think that the pandas have such a wonderful area but the polar bear mother with her cub must stay in a very unsuitable enclosure. – However, I’m glad to see the little Imaq seems to be healthy and happy anyway.

    Hugs from Mervi

  8. Liebe Mervi,

    danke fĂŒr die Antwort. Das stimmt, die Anlage ist wirklich nicht schön. Eigentlich dĂŒrfte man dort ĂŒberhaupt nicht zĂŒchten. Die kleine Imaq kennt es ja nicht anders. Trotzdem traurig.
    Nichts gegen die PandabĂ€ren. Die können ja nichts dafĂŒr. Aber ich finde es furchtbar, dass fĂŒr die PandabĂ€ren sehr teure moderne Anlagen gebaut werden, und noch dazu Millionen Euros fĂŒr die Pandas an China bezahlt werden, und teilweise die anderen Zootiere in kleinen KĂ€figen oder Anlagen leben mĂŒssen, oder auch an andere Zoos abgegeben werden, da dann kein Platz mehr fĂŒr sie ist.
    Und rede nicht nur von Copenhagen.

    Liebe GrĂŒĂŸe

  9. dear Mervi,
    these are wonderful pictures and a great video from Copenhagen.
    I love the fearless Viking Princess and her dear Mama and wish both further a very good time together
    thank you for sharing with us
    dear greetings

  10. Liebe Mervi,
    noch so ein kleiner Wirbelwind und Mama Lynn hat alles gut im Blick!
    Danke fĂŒrs Zeigen und liebe GrĂŒĂŸe
    Moni K
