Today is the Mother’s Day so I thought it would be a perfect day to show you some fantastic photos of Flocke and her baby trio.

It’s not easy to catch all four in a same photo …..

…. where’s the third cubbie?

Oh yeah, here they are – the whole family together.

Exploring the enclosure is very exciting. I’m sure Flocke can count to three when she’s checking that all the kids are there. ­čÖé

It’s really amazing that the hand raised Flocke gave birth to three cubs – and they all survived! What a good mother our super queen is!

Even these cubbies know that a dirty bear is a happy bear! ­čÖé

Wrestling on the grass is, naturally, a ‘must’!

Aren’t they cute!!!

  1. Dear Mervi
    Part of me is very sad as I had been hoping to meet Molly Merrow at Marineland for my first ever visit to Flocke.
    But the joy of seeing Flocke looking after three cubs has made that a lot easier.
    I remember Flocke used to end her diary on BR television with a flash of her little pink tongue and Vielleicht Morgen?
    That message gives me hope too

  2. Dear Mervi!
    What a lovely post on Mother┬┤s Day!

    It┬┤s a delight to see Flocke and her rascals doing so well.
    I loved all of the photos but especially the one with the cub who is doing the morning gymnastics.

    Flocke is a beautiful and impressive bear lady and a good and caring mother.
    Certainly she┬┤s got all paws full with her frisky kids but she seems to be happy and content.

    Thank you for sharing these enjoyable impressions.

    Hugs
    Anke

  3. Thank you very much dear Mervi.
    Best wishes to Flocke and her cubs.

  4. Alles Gute zum Muttertag an alle M├╝tter.

    Liebe Mervi,

    danke f├╝r die sch├Ânen Fotos von Flocke und ihren drei s├╝├čen Babys.

    Wer h├Ątte das gedacht, dass alle drei B├Ąrchen durchkommen. Flocke macht einen super Job. Sie tut mir schon etwas leid, auch wenn die Drei bestimmt auch viel miteinander spielen, ist es doch bestimmt f├╝r Flocke manchmal sehr anstrengend. Sie macht auch einen etwas m├╝den Eindruck.

    Die Eisgrotte ist bestimmt bei den Kiddies auch sehr beliebt.
    Weiterhin alles Gute f├╝r die s├╝├če Familie.

    Liebe Gr├╝├če
    Monika

  5. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for the lovely pictures of Flocke and her kids.
    Flocke is a great mother.
    Hugs

  6. Liebe Mervi,

    die Namen sind ganz ungew├Âhnlich aber sehr h├╝bsch.
    Flocke macht wirklich einen gro├čartigen Job mit ihren drei Rabauken und die sind allerliebst.
    Wenigstens haben sie viel Abwechslung miteinander zu spielen, derweil kann Flocke sich wenigstens
    ab und zu etwas auruhen.

    Weiterhin viel Gl├╝ck bei der Aufzucht w├╝nsche ich Flocke und dem Zoo!

    Herzliche Gr├╝├če
    Britta-Gudrun

  7. Dear MERVI – It’s very kind of you to reveal the trio’s names also immediately in your ‘KWM’.

    I like them – the cubs for sure! but also their names. Solely it seems not to be too fair that two of them have got names with two syllables each but the third one has to listen to and the keepers have to cope with four syllables in this third case! ;-)))) . . . Pity that FLOCKE cannot – and even if she could, she wouldn’t reveal her very personal names to her cubs to us ! ;-))))

    GOOD LUCK again to you eight-syllabled in total TRIO ! And to mama FLOCKE and daddy RASPUTIN as well, of course!

  8. Dear Mervi and Dumba
    The names are very pretty. I agree that Flocke wont mind as she already has names for the three which are at once simpler and more complicated.

  9. Sehr sch├Âne Namen. ­čÖé
    Alles Gute den Drillingen

  10. Flocke hat bestimmt alle Pfoten voll zu tun. Danke fuer die News und die bezaubernden Bilder.
    Alles Gute nach Antibes.

    Liebe Gruesse, Erika

  11. Liebe Mervi, Liebe Val├ęry
    bin ├╝bergl├╝cklich, da├č Flocke ihre Aufgabe so gut meistert!
    Traurig, da├č bisher alle Besuchstermine abgesagt sind aber ich bin ├╝berzeugt noch dieses Jahr meine
    Herzensb├Ąrin besuchen zu k├Ânnen.
    Die kleine Tala und ihre Br├╝der Indiana und Yuma haben mit Flocke eine sehr gutm├╝tige Mama und ich hoffe dass sie ihr nicht allzu sehr auf der Schnauze herum tanzen.
    Vielen Dank f├╝r die sehr sch├Ânen Bilder und hoffentlich bald mehr!
    Liebe Gr├╝├če Moni K

  12. Dear Mervi, Flocke is in one word: SUPER!!! And a cuteness alert was needed. All three are adorable and they already know a very important thing: a messy bear is a happy bear.
    I am crossing all fingers that MoniK can visit her sweet princess later this Summer.
