The polar bears in the Copenhagen Zoo had a cool surprise on a hot day in July! Nine tons of snow was donated to the white fluffy giants.


Lynn and Imaq were, of course, very happy about the unexpected gift.


Some ‘Zoocamp participators’ aged 8-10 years helped to spread the snow in the enclosure so there were even many interesting scents …


Oooops! OK, this isn’t exactly the Hahnenkamm but it’s still wonderful to try some downhill gliding. 🙂


After the Winter sports in the Summer a nice snack was very welcome.


Imaq is now almost as big as mama Lynn. How time flies …..

  1. Liebe Mervi,

    der Vergleich mit dem Hahnenkamm-Rennen ist witzig und dass diese EisĂŒberraschung gut bei den
    BĂ€ren angekommen ist, sieht man auf einen Blick.
    Ich wĂŒrde mich freuen, wenn alle Zoos solche winterlichen Überraschungen fĂŒr ihre BĂ€ren in heißen Sommertagen anbieten wĂŒrden!

    Herzliche GrĂŒĂŸe

  2. Ein echter dÀnischer EisbÀr. SpezialitÀt: Fleisch-Weitwurf. Fand ich in diesem Fall echt lustig.

    Die DĂ€nen sind halt immer ein ‘Hingucker’, egal ob EisbĂ€ren klein oder groß, andere Tiere oder Menschen!

    Thank you very much, dear MERVI, that you brought the little snow-party for and with the Copenhagen polar bears to us!

  3. Dear Mervi
    Inuvik seems to have grown even faster than Imaq last year.
    Thank you for this nice story. I have only to close my eyes to be back there.

  4. Hello Ralph!

    Sorry, I mixed the names. The young bear is, of course, Imaq! Thanks for having the hawk eyes! 🙂

  5. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for this refreshing update from the Copenhagen Zoo!
    It is plain to see that Lynn and Imaq really appreciated this cool surprise by their keepers and enjoyed to roll around and especially that downhill gliding to the fullest.
    Imaq reminded me of Knut when she threw the meat into the pool…

    Since it cooled down in Berlin in the last few days IÂŽm not getting envious at all… 😉


  6. Thank you very much dear Mervi.
    Best wishes to Lynn and Imaq.

  7. dear Mervi,
    that`s cool say Lynn and Imaq, wonderful idea of the dear Keepers,
    I wish these lovely Polar bears a good Summer time with much joy
    thank you for sharing the great pictures with us
    dear greetings and paw waves

  8. Liebe Mervi,
    Leider sehen wir viel zu wenig von Lynn und Imaq, jetzt schon ĂŒber 1Jahr alt und ein Teenager.
    Mit dem Essen spielen, da kann der Hunger nicht groß sein aber Hauptsache der BĂ€r hat Spaß.
    Vielen Dank fĂŒr die Bilder und das Video aus dem Zoo Kopenhagen.
    Liebe GrĂŒĂŸe Moni K
