Again there’s a heat wave in Europe and people are sweating, swearing and wondering how to cope with the hot weather. I’m glad to inform you that our animal friends in Nuenen have perfect solutions to the problem. DO NOTHING!

The polar bear family is spending a lot of time ‘on the beach’.

A nice shadowy spot is a perfect place for relaxing.

Relaxation is the key word!

Of course, the bears get hungry even when the weather is hot and a snack tastes best by the pool ….

…. and even better in the water!

The bar is always open so our bears can drink whenever they feel thirsty.

A family meeting in the green. Where would they find the best shadow?

I guess they agreed that a place under the trees is the best choice.

Hmmm, this shadow is already occupied!

A nice swimming tour is never wrong!

The water could be a bit colder but it’s refreshing anyway ….

The cheetah has found a nice place in the shadow and can even enjoy the beautiful flowers.

If you can’t find a nice place on the ground – please, don’t hesitate to climb a tree. There’s always a comfortable branch for napping. This excellent advice comes from the cute red panda.

Elephants have a very special way of keeping themselves cool.

This kid is saving energy using his mama as a ladder! What a genious!

This baby uses mama’s back as a cushion. Very cosy and comfortable!

I think we’ve met this little rascal before …. He’s our sweet hitch hiker who knows how to choose the best means of transportation.

I hope you will listen to our animal friends and take things easy now that it’s too darned hot!

I think this photo illustrates perfectly our friends’ message to you. ­čÖé

  1. Liebe Mervi und lieber Hans,
    Eisb├Ąren halten heisse Temperaturen ganz gut aus und sie k├Ânnen sich im Wasser erfrischen.
    Ich mache es wie die B├Ąren und tue nichts!
    Vielen Dank, sch├Âne Bilder aus Nuenen und der n├Ąchste Winter wird sehnlichst von mir erwartet.
    Liebe Gr├╝├če Moni K

  2. Dear Mervi and Hans
    After a dsy out shopping it is great to relax with the Nuenen animals. I love the Polar Bear family all together. This is such a rare sight. I wish I could make the journey.

  3. Liebe Mervi,
    lieber Hans,

    Tiere wissen von selbst am besten, wie man sich bei Hitze verh├Ąlt – n├Ąmlich ganz ruhig und entspannt.
    Und die, denen das Futter sowieso serviert wird, k├Ânnen noch l├Ąnger ruhen als ihre Artgenossen in der
    freien Wildbahn.

    Die Ratschl├Ąge sind allesamt bestens von Hans mit allen Tierarten vorgestellt, da bleibt kein Wunsch offen.

    Mervi, vielen Dank f├╝r deine lustigen Interpreationen; von dir werden alle “gerne auf den Arm genommen”.

    Liebe Gr├╝├če
    Britta-Gudrun

  4. Dear Mervi and Hans!
    Thank you for this relaxed report from Nuenen.
    It is quite understandable that the animals are lazing when the weather is hot and humid.
    Regarding this there is no big difference between them and the two-legs…

    Today we have a grey and humid day in Berlin and when watching these photos I┬┤m getting sleepy too…
    It is helpful to take a break now and then!

    All the best
    Hugs
    Anke

  5. Dear Hans and Mervi!
    Thank you for the pictures from Nuenen. The polar bears enjoy the water and the green grass.
    Hugs
    Ludmila

  6. Dear Hans

    I thank you for your refreshing report from Nuenen.
    The family enjoys the summer by the pool.

    Also the other animals in the zoo show their best side. The picture of the cheetah is beautiful.

    Best wishes, Anita

  7. Relaxen ist immer eine gute Idee bei der Hitze. ­čśë
