When Veronika and Hans visited the Zoo Mulhouse in Alsace on the 26th of August it was very hot – 29 degrees Celsius. No wonder they met Sesi and Nanuq  playing in the water.

However, soon they noticed there was something special happening …..

Sesi and Nanuq were observing their visitors with great interest.

Mama, what can you see? Is there anybody we know?

Yes, I think I recognize at least one visitor ….

Oh yes, there were a familiar faces among the visitors – Veronika and Hans! Veronika took this photo.

Sesi and Nanook kept watching and they seem to be very glad about their faithful visitors.

Papa Vicks was strolling on the green grass.

Now he smelt something ….

Vicks has a nice dinner table ….

Tina was indoors during Hans’ and Veronika’s visit so there are no photos of her this time.

This is Nanuq sniffing the air

Finally it was time for some cuddling

It’s not easy to know who’s who!

It’s always nice to meet visitors but now it’s time for some relaxation!

Can we have some privacy, please?

Soon Nanuq had travelled to the land of dreams.

  1. Dear Veronika and Hans!
    Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for this nice report about the polar bears in the Zoo Mulhouse and the fabulous pics from a hot summer´s day.
    Hans seemed to be a bit exhausted on the photo… Today the heat in our area is gone and we all can recover from these quite unbearable heatwaves in recent weeks.

    Nanuq became a beautiful young lady by now and has nearly the same size as her mother.
    It´s really difficult to tell who is who.

    I loved the pic where Sesi is standing upright as well as the cuddling of mother and daughter or those where Sesi and Nanuq chill out in the grass.
    The cute last photo makes me want to go to bed again…
    I´m happy the bears are doing well!
