The animals in Orsa are ready for the Fall

It’s been a hot Summer even in Orsa but the animals know their calender and are looking forward to the Fall. The polar bears and the brown bears have been offered a chance to catch the fish in their ponds but now the fishing season is over.

I hope Ewa, Wilb├Ąr and Hope can find some blueberries!

This is the lower part of the polar bears’ enclosure. This photo only shows a little of the huge area.

The path behind the fence leads to the upper part. The bears will reach it by walking through the small forest.

Hope got a new toy nicely ‘wrapped’ with a ribbon. She looks very pleased with the treat.

It remains to be seen if there will be any result of the mating period of the polar bears this year. I’m keeping my fingers crossed because in Orsa there’s enough place for both the adult bears and the cub/s.

The Amur tigers are gorgeous as always.

This wolverine must have smelt something eatable …. ­čÖé

Brown bears are resting after a meal. They must gain weight before it’s time for the hibernation period.

This brownie seems to be rehearsing the Winter nap! ­čÖé

This is my kingdom! I’m keeping an eye on it sitting on my watch tower.

There are two sweet lynx kittens in the park.

This one wanted to play hide and seek.

Cuter than cute!

How many lynx can you see in this photo?

Ewa, Wilb├Ąr and Hope are already looking forward to the snowy season but at least Hope thinks that rolling in the grass is quite fun, too! ­čÖé

  1. Dear Mervi!

    Thank you for the interesting report and the fine photos.
    Orsa is very nice. The animals have fine eclourses.

    I wish you all a pleasant Weekend!
    Greetings
    Yeo

  2. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for these wonderful photographs from the Orsa Predator Center.
    All these beauties surely look forward to autumn and its colours and pleasures.
    They must be quite relieved that the heat is gone now.

    I wish Hope, Ewa and Wilb├Ąr all blueberries they want and can eat!

    All animals: the polar bears, the tigers, the wolverine, the brown bears, leopards and lynxes with their cute offspring look magnificent.
    BTW I found not less than three lynxes on that photo…

    I loved the pic of the brownie taking a nap at the doorstep though I┬┤m getting a little tired by now…

    Hope rolling around in the grass is for sure a delightful sight.

    Hugs
    Anke

  3. Dear Mervi,
    I see three polar bears in the pond. It is great that they can stay together. Hope got a nice present.
    All animals look wonderful. The lynxes are very cute.
    Hugs

  4. Hallo Mervi

    Ich freue mich, wieder etwas aus dem
    hohen Norden zu h├Âren. Hope sieht
    super aus. Die kleinen Luchse sind
    zu niedlich. Ein sch├Âner Bericht !

    Gr├╝ssle
    Chris

  5. Liebe Mervi,

    ich freue mich auch sehr, wieder etwas ├╝ber Orsa zu sehen und zu lesen.
    Die Eisb├Ąren werden nach diesem langen Sommer bestimmt genug Beeren finden in diesem riesigen Areal.
    ├ťber das Ergebnis der 1. Liebesaffaire von Hope und Wilb├Ąr k├Ânnnen wir nur spekulieren…..

    Den Braunb├Ąren geht es prima und sie k├Ânnen getrost ihrer ├ťberwinterung mit gut gef├╝lltem Magen entgegensehen. Die kleinen Luchse sind allerliebst und auf dem Suchbild sehr ich auch insgesamt drei.

    Es ist so sch├Ân zu sehen, wie Hope sich gen├╝sslich im Gras w├Ąlzt, bald kann sie es wieder im
    Schnee genie├čen. Die Amur Tiger freuen sich sicher auch ├╝ber Schnee, bei dem Leopard bin ich mir nicht so sicher.

    Vielen Dank f├╝r deinen Bericht und liebe Gr├╝├če!

  6. ORSA (Orsa Predator Center) is for sure a lovely place to be and stay
    – as much for the beautiful and lovely animals as for the human keepers and visitors.

    The photo of HOPE with her charming present is priceless.

    Unfortunately I don’t recognize in the other pics of the polar bears who is who.

    Wonderful brown bears, wolverine and big and small cats!

    Thanks for sharing and showing.

    Is it possible that WILBEAR refused to appear in the ‘KWM’-report?

  7. PS:
    I am under the ‘impression'(!) I see three kittens and their mother in two pics!

  8. Dear Mervi
    The Orsa Predator Centre is such a beautiful place with such gorgeous animals. It is strange to think of Hope and see a fine adult bear. Time has flown.

  9. Liebe Mervi!

    Orsa im Herbst ist wunderschoen! Danke fuer die tollen Bilder von den Bewohnern des schoenen Zoos.

    Liebr Gruesse, Erika

  10. Liebe Mervi,

    vielen Dank f├╝r die sch├Ânen Bilder von den Gro├čkatzen, Braunb├Ąren, und nat├╝rlich von den Eisb├Ąren, insbesondere von Hope.

    Hope zeigt uns, dass sie sich scheinbar sehr wohl f├╝hlt. Sch├Ânes Video. Sie sieht sehr gut aus.

    Es dauert sicher nicht mehr allzu lange, bis wir hier wieder wunderbare Schneebilder aus Orsa sehen werden.

    Liebe Gr├╝├če
    Monika
