Imaq has learnt that Lynn makes sure she gets her share of any food that arrives in the enclosure.

food3

Imaq also knows that Lynn can provide a very nourishing meal and makes her wishes known.

food4

Lynn has set times and places for feeding Imaq.

food5

In this photo Lynn appears to be smiling. She often has this contented expression. But we know that Polar Bears have no facial expressions according to experts.

food6

Imaq cannot resist a friendly scuffle with Mum.

food7

One of the most beautiful sights and sounds. A mother Polar and a cub feeding. The noise became famous around the world because of Knut!

Imaq spends a lot of time “fishing” for interesting objects and bringing them on land.

food11

The stairs and rocks present no obstacle for this sure-footed cub.

food12

Sometimes Imaq will find something worth eating. Grass is a favourite snack.

food13

Often the things Imaq finds can be eaten.

food14

Imaq is already sharing meat and fish with Lynn.

  1. Lieber Ralph,

    Imaq ist groß geworden und fischt schon sehr geschickt irgendeine Beute aus dem Wasser,
    aber am liebsten ist ihm immer noch Mamas Milchbar.
    Das Nuckelgeräusch ist wirklich ein besonderer Hörgenuss.

    Vielen Dank für deinen Bericht aus Kopenhagen und liebe Grüße!

  2. Dear Ralph,
    Lynn is a great mother learning her cub all the things she needs to know. And while sharing her food, she is still able to give her food. Imaq is so funny and self-confident, and also apparently pretty roundish. Every square centimeter of the enclosure is worth to be explored by cubbie.

  3. Thank you very much dear Ralph.
    Best wishes to Imaq and Lynn.

  4. Dear Ralph,

    Imaq is growing fast and mama Lynn has all the reason to be proud of her beautiful daughter. No wonder she seems to be smiling in many photos. 🙂 The ‘experts’ may say what they want but polar bears DO have facial expressions!

    Thank you so much for another great report from Copenhagen!

    Hugs from Mervi

  5. Dear Ralph!
    Thank you for another part of your Copenhagen Zoo report.
    You watched the bears very closely and made interesting obserations considering Lynn´s and Imaq´s behaviour. Lynn seems to be a good and loving mother who nevertheless set the rules.
    Given that Lynn is a first time mother, she is surprisingly perfect.

    But I can´t but repeat myself: I´m so happy Lynn and Imaq moved to the big enclosure!

    Hugs
    Anke

  6. Dear Ralph,
    Lynn is a yound mother, but she is very confident. Imaq is a curious girl.
    Hugs

  7. Lieber Ralph!

    Danke für die bezaubernden Bilder, Lynn und Imaq verstehen sich so gut, die Kleine Nacht tolle Fortschritte.

    Liebe Grüße, Erika

  8. Lieber Ralph,

    danke für den vierten Teil von Deinem Besuch aus Copenhagen.
    Die süße Imaq ist auch schon schön gewachsen.
    Wenn ich das Gehege mit dem von unserer Hertha vergleiche, sieht es in Copenhagen leider ziemlich oede aus.
    Und Spielzeug ist auch kaum zu sehen.
    Aber vielleicht liegt es daran, dass man nur einen kleinen Teil vom Gehege sieht.

    Liebe Grüße
    Monika

  9. Lieber Ralph

    Ich danke Dir für den netten und informativen Bericht aus Copenhagen.

    Schön, dass es Mutter und Tochter gut geht.
    Viele Grüße aus München

    Hugs
    Anita

  10. Lieber Ralph, tolle Fotos ! Danke schön. Die Bären sind ab und zu im “The arctic Ring” und ab und zu im alten Gehege. Es geht den Bären gut.

    Sommergrüße aus Kopenhagen

  11. In this series of LYNN-lessons to IMAQ you teached also your readers in ‘KWM’ a lot about
    polar bear behaviour and education of youngsters by the adults – and I learned a new word:
    (to) scuffle. Nice sound and fine thing for any child whether animal or human! 😉

    And IMAQ makes progresses in the choice of what she likes to eat.
    As we know: in the end polar bears love to eat in general – and consequntly near to everything! 😉
