Ouwehands Dierenpark – What could be a better way to start a new day than cuddling with mama? Yuka knows it and loves the morning routine with mama Freedom.

We are sure this is going to be a great day for us!

It’s wise to relax and stretch a little before the daily activities start …. 🙂

Maybe the keepers have hidden some food here – or maybe a toy ….

There was no toy under the stones but there was a wonderful surprise for Yuka and Freedom anyway.

Of course, Freedom let her son to examine the new toy first.

Perfect for scratching my back! Wow, this is a fantastic toy!

Dear keepers, it’s been a wonderful day but now we would like to enter our bedroom!

Wolodja and his little friends

Papa Wolodja lives in the Rotterdam Zoo but he’s not alone.

First there were two magpies ….

Oh bear, and now the magpie parade is going on 🙂

  1. Dear Nel,
    thank you for the pictures of Freedom and Yuka. They got an interesting toy 🙂
    Wolodja looks very relaxed. He does not care about the birds 🙂
    Hugs

  2. Thank you very much, dear NEL and MERVI, for your cooperation:
    gorgeous and partially also funny photos and subtitles. . . . . Did you hear my laughs? 😉

    Wonderful to see what entertaining enrichment-toys made of modern (pompier-tubes)
    and natural (magpies!) material/stuff 😉 the polar bears have got in the Netherlands.

    Five magpies are joining ‘our’ WOLODJA not to be bored in his lonely(?)- or at least batchelor-life!
    Emaphatic beasties. I don’t know why they have such a bad reputation once in a while . . . 😉

    Ich habe es – so glaube ich – schon einmal zugegeben, dass ich bei manchen Zoos und Tieren nicht so richtig durchblicke, wie sie zusammengehören und wo sie liegen/leben, so auch hier beim RHENEN- und ROTTERDAM-ZOO . . .

    [ Recherche: Zoos in den NIEDERLANDEN:

    So richtig weitergeholfen hat mir das aber auch nicht. . . . Vielleicht nĂŒtzt der Link ja wenigstens jeman anderem in irgendeiner Weise . . ]

  3. Thank you very much dear Mervi and Nel.
    Best wishes to Freedom, Yuka and Wolodja.

  4. Dear Nel and Mervi
    Thank you for sharing these photos of Freedom,Yuka and Volodya.
    Volodya looks much fuller and grown up than he did in Berlin.
    Freedom.and Yuka seem to have a really nice time.

  5. Dear Mervi and Nel!
    Thank you for your again well-made teamwork!
    Freedom and Yuka are doing fine and probably know how to have fun together. I loved the photo of the bear boy rolling around in the gras! Good to know that the bears are spoiled with interesting toys.
    The photos of Wolodja with the magpies are priceless, especially the magpie parade!

    Hugs

  6. Liebe Nel und liebe Mervi,
    Freedom und ihr Sohn haben bestimmt keine Langeweile mit ihrem neuen Spielzeug.
    Wolodja in Rotterdam wartet auf seinen nĂ€chsten Einsatz um EisbĂ€rdamen zu beglĂŒcken.
    Die elstern sind ganz schön frech und Wolo anscheinend satt.
    Vielen Dank fĂŒr diese schönen Bilder unserer Lieblinge aus Rhenen und Rotterdam.
    Liebe GrĂŒĂŸe Moni K
