The temperatures in Novosibirsk have been very pleasant for Gerda, Kai, Nordi and Shauna – about 18-20 minus degrees! No wonder the young bears look a bit astonished by the new kind of weather. 🙂

Dear kids! This is OUR season – let’s enjoy it whole heartedly!

You’ve been wondering if your papa also has snow – let’s go and find out!

I think I smell snow ….

Mama, I want to smell the snow, too – but I don’t think it smells anything!

Listen carefully! Can you hear big paws making noise on the ice in our neighbouring enclosure?

Oh yes, it’s Kai walking on the ice!

The white can matches the snow and the ice perfectly don’t you agree?

I’m the KING!

Our papa is the king now. Will I be a king, too, when I grow up?

Okay, I can wait …. it will take some time until I’m as big as papa.

Papa may be bigger but I’m cuter!! Please, say that you agree with me!

Isn’t it fantastic that there are visitors even when the weather is so cold?

Of course, I can understand the visitors love us. We simply are so cute and adorable – and modest!

  1. Dear Anna and Nina!
    Thank you for the pictures and video from the zoo Novosibirsk. The polar bears lave the snow and the cold weather. I admire you for the visiting the bears at such cold temperatures.
    Hugs
    Ludmila

  2. Dear Anna and Nina!
    I agree with Ludmila: this must be love for sure when you visit Gerda, her kids and Kai at these temperatures…
    The whole family looks fantastic and they enjoy the snow and the freezing cold to the fullest.
    The photos and the video are heartwarming: all this cuddling and the tender care of Gerda for her cubs.
    I´m convinced the cubs have the best time of their life.

    Even a big grown up bear like Kai is playful. I find this very touching.
    Thank you for sharing your impressions with us!

    Mervi, your subtitles add again an affectionate and humorous final touch. Thank you!

    Hugs
    Anke

  3. Dear Anna, Nina and Mervi
    The bears in Novosibirsk are really in their element. Kain particular looks very pleased with the weather.
    Beautiful images and words

  4. Liebe Anna, liebe, Nina, liebe Mervi,

    Gerda ist eindeutig sehr mĂĽde und setzt sich nur ungern hin zum Stillen ihrer Zwillinge.
    Aber lautes Jammern und Beharlichkeit öffnet ihnen schliesslich doch die Milchbar.
    Bei großer Kälte ist regelmäßige Nahrung auch sehr wichtig.

    Mervi, deine Kommentare sind wieder sehr witzig und Anna und Nina gehören
    meine ganze Bewunderung für ihre Tapferkeit bei dieser Kälte im Zoo.

    Herzliche GrĂĽĂźe und vielen Dank!
    Britta-Gudrun

  5. Liebe Mervi,

    vielen Dank für`s Einstellen der wunderschönen Fotos von Anna, und das Video von Nina.
    Oh ja, 18-20 Grad minus ist schon heftig. Aber die Bären fühlen sich bei diesen Temperaturen wohl.

    Das Geräusch wenn Kind an Mamas Milchbar will, höre ich zurzeit auch sehr oft. Obwohl Hertha noch energischer ist.

    Liebe GrĂĽĂźe
    Monika

  6. Dear Anna and Nina
    Dear Mervi

    Thank you so much for this wonderful threat!! The pictures are cute and the video is simply great.

    Hugs
    Anita

  7. Freu mich wieder ĂĽber die drei Guten!

  8. Liebe Anna, Nina und Mervi,
    Gerda ist eine erfahrene Mutter und weis schon wann sie die Milchbar öffnen will.
    SĂĽĂź sind die Zwillinge immer noch und es ist eine Freude diese Familie zu sehen.
    Vielen Dank, schöne Bilder und Video und Mervi hat mit ihren humorigen Texten das Sahnehäubchen geliefert.
    Liebe GrĂĽĂźe Moni K
