Quintana came to us last Summer from the Tierpark Hellabrunn in Munich. Aron arrived in the Autumn last year from the Tallinn Zoo in Estonia.

Our two polar bears now share the same enclosure. They had their first ‘date’ last week and we can already state they make a magnificent duo! 🙂

After recommendations and in co-operation with the EEP coordinator we allowed Aron and Quintana to meet.

During the first meeting the young bears were playing happily together. Of course, the keepers even served the bear couple some yammy snacks.

Even though the first meeting went surprisingly well and smoothly our vets and keepers are keeping an eye on Aron and Quintana all the time so they can be sure there won’t be any ‘mishaps’.

Knuti’s Weekly wishes Aron, Quintana and their keepers a happy Spring time!

  1. Dear Mervi
    It is good to see these two bears togeth er. Quintana has to get her fur back in order like Aarons lovely coat.
    But the two seem to have a lot of space and water to play in.

  2. Thank you very much dear Mervi.
    Best wishes to Quintana and Aron.

  3. Liebe Mervi

    Ich freue mich sehr, dass die Beiden nun endlich zusammen sind. Und alles verläuft ja super.
    Die Bären mögen sich und toben miteinander. Was will man mehr.
    Quintana´ s Fell sieht nicht so tolle aus. Aber es sieht so aus, als würde es gerade nachwachsen.

    Danke Dir, liebe Mervi, für die herrlichen Neuigkeiten aus Frankreich.

    Hugs,
    Anita

  5. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for the good news from the zoo de La Lèche!
    It’s wonderful that Quintana and Aron were fond of each other and played together right away.
    I was startled by the condition of Quintana’s fur. I hope that everything is OK with her and that it will grow back quickly.

    Hugs

  6. ARON-Boy looks great ..
    and both of Bears seem happy – it’s
    the most important !!!!

    That’s very nice,
    you’ve published it even here, dear Mervi ..,
    but I’d like to correct:
    that’s still the Zoo de La Flèche ….!

    Greetings,
    Evi

  7. Dear Evi!
    Thank you for the correction!
    Somehow the name seemed strange to me. But I was not sure and could not put my finger on it… 😉

    Hugs
