Waiting for snow

Gerda is a wise mother and knows that a cosy morning is a quarantee for a good day!

Some tender moments before breakfast are a perfect way to make the twins happy!

Nose to nose

This time of the year the family can eat as much apples as they possibly can!

Now they noticed something ….

Oh, it’s only the magpie. The little birdie isn’t afraid of the white giants but invites himself to enjoy a red breakfast. 🙂 Gerda, Shauna and Nordi don’t seem to mind.

Because so many of our fans visit us very often it’s important to know how to pose nicely. The family is rehearsing nice sitting – and they sure are very photogenique!

The family has had a little snow drift during the whole Summer which is very much appreciated.

The soft snow is a perfect ‘carpet’ for the morning gymnastics.

Look how agile I am! Jane Fonda must be envious! 🙂

After an exhausting aerobics session it’s nice to relax.

Even a young polar bear likes the typical ‘Troll pose’. 🙂

The Autumn is a nice season but we are waiting for more snow.

We are very happy about our ‘glacier’ but we remember how wonderful it was when the whole enclosure was covered with the white stuff.

Nordi is a very innovative polar bear boy so he decided to make it snow!!

Oh bear, I can throw snow in the air and it falls back to me!

Afterwards I can shake it off of my fur. You must admit I’m a clever kind of polar bear!

Hello Arkadij! Do you know when it will snow again?

119049339_3003804476394546_3956658498423785729_o

Do we smell snow flakes?

119048964_3003805083061152_8000388955464924839_o

Well, maybe we just have to be patient. The snow will come when the time is right ….

Kai would like to calm down his kids. Hopefully they will hear his gentle growling.

In this photo Kai looks like a male Snow White – don’t you agree? 🙂

Not only polar bears were treated with yammy snacks. This beautifully laid table was meant for the surikats.

This little rascal has found something to eat and even something to play with.

A carot is always yammy-yammy-yammy.

The magpie never hesitates to invite himself to a hearty meal! 🙂

119136299_3003806883060972_476996209699016300_o

Gerda, Kai, Shauna and Nordi have amazingly thick and white furs. What a beautiful family they are!

Thank you for watching! We’ll be back soon!

  4. Thank you very much dear Mervi and Arkadij.
    Best wishes to Kai, Gerda, Nordi and Shauna.

  5. Dear Mervi and Arkadij!
    Thank you for wonderful photos of this wonderful polar bear family and the fitting and affectionate subtitles. There are so many great photos of these smart and good-looking polar bears and some of their cute and interesting neighbours that I´m not able to choose a favourite.

    I´m impressed about the amount of apples they were given. Hopefully they got no tummyache after they had eaten them all…

    Snowfall would be fine for the bears in Novosibirsk, but not for me, not yet!

    Hugs
    Anke
