Hans and Veronika visited the Zoo Mulhouse on the 23rd of May and found all four polar bears outing.

This is a very nice zoo with big enclosures for the animals and the whole area is filled with plants and flowers.

Queen Sesi – Doesn’t she look very royal?

Of course, there’s even a sweet princess – Nanuq – in this kingdom! She loves to cuddle with mama.

Veronika and Hans didn’t come empty handed but brought nice toys to the polar bears.

Sesi and Nanuq were very curious ….

Maybe that nice toy Hans is holding is for us?

Nanuq and Sesi got two pylons – one white and one orange.

How practical that this toy has a handle so it’s easy to carry it.

After a playing time in the water the toy needs to dry …. and so do I!

Is this really polar bear proof? 🙂

Sesi and Nanuq have a nice pool and, of course, it’s their favourite place on a hot Summer day.

  1. Dear Hans and Veronika and Mervi
    It is so wonderful to visit a Zoo that I would not be able to visit myself. All three bears are in great condition and have a lovely home. Toys seem to be a hit, even with Vicks who looks a lot more active than most male Polars!

  2. Dear Hans and Veronika!
    Thank you for the pictures from thr zoo Mulhouse. The bears were very happy about the new toys.
    Vics is a huge bear now.
    Hugs
    Ludmila

  3. Dear Veronika, Hans and Mervi!
    Thank you for these nice and heartwarming pics from this beautiful zoo and its polar bears. How nice that we even get to know the friendly face of Hans!
    The vivid subtitles are again the cherry on the cake!

    It´s obvious that the nice gifts were very much appreciated and you must have been happy to see them play with. The thorough quality control by the bears seemed to be satisfying for donors and presentees equally.

    The whole family looks magnificent and makes sure to have fun in water and on land.
    I loved the underwater pics.

    Hugs

  4. Thank you very much, VERONIKA and HANS, for having brought news and beautiful pictures from France for a change – of polar bears AND plants/colourful flowers AND did we even get the honour to see the both of you? How generous of you to bring those heavy gifts to the bears (nothing ain’t too heavy – they are YOUR bears after all!? 🙂 ).

    This time my favorite pics are those of the male in and under water!

    Thank you, dear MERVI, for having published another ‘featured article’.

  5. Dear Hans and Veronika!

    A great idea to bring along the polar bear toys.
    And it’s great if the bears get them right away and the donor can see how the bears play with their presents.

    A great experience for you and a great slideshow for us.

    Thank you very much!

    Hugs
    Anita

  6. Lieber Hans & Veronika,

    das sind zwei wunderbare Geschenke, die ihr den Bären mitgebracht habt,
    Ich bin gespannt, wie lange sie halten.
    Mich würde interessieren, ob die Bären sie auch wegen der verschiedenen
    Farbe dem anderen abholen wollen, aber so lange konntet ihr wohl nicht dort
    verweile, um das zu beobachten.
    Die Blumenpracht in diesem Zoo ist ebenfalls ganz herrlich.

    Vielen Dank für euren Bericht und liebe Grüße!
    Britta-Gudrun

  8. Thank you very much dear Mervi, Veronika and Hans.
    Best wishes to Vicks, Sesi, Nanuq and Tina.
