Milana’s and Sprinter’s daughter Nana is now one and a half year old. As you may remember she’s a granddaughter of Simona and Wrangel. By the way – Milana is a sister of Gerda in Novosibirsk.

Nana loves all kinds of balls. No matter if they are yellow, red or blue – the main thing is they’re round! :-What luck the keepers have a great variety of balls in store.)

The sweet Nana is an excellent diver and jumps very elegantly into the water.


This day the yellow ball was the favourite.


Nana throws the ball in the air …



Oh bear, has the sun landed in our pool? ­čÖé


It’s a pure pleasure to watch Nana playing – both for the visitors and her keepers!



Knuti’s Weekly wishes Nana and her parents a pleasant Summer time! The same goes, of course, to her keepers and all the visitors as well.

  1. Dear Mervi
    I was lucky enough to be able to spend a day with Milana and Nana in September last year
    and was impressed by how they both loved to jump into the water.
    They were using Iceberg Lettuces as balls.
    Nana is looking very good indeed. I hope that she will be found a good home when the time comes.

  2. Liebe Mervi,

    die junge Dame liefert eine zirkusreife Show und die verwandtschaftlichen Verh├Ąltnisse sind sehr interessant.
    Milana und Sprinter k├Ânnen stolz auf ihre Tochter sein, die hoffentlich noch eine Weile bleiben kann,
    denn die Unterbringung von Jugb├Ąren ist zurzeit nicht ganz so einfach.

    Also Nana, wenn du schlau bist, dann trage keine Machtk├Ąmpfe mit deiner Mutter aus,
    dann darfst du auch noch eine Weile bleiben.

    Vor Jahren war noch der Trend die Jungen m├Âglichst schon mit einem Jahr von der Mutter zu trennen,davon ist manmittlerweile gottlob abgekommen.

    Ralph, vielleicht bist du bei der n├Ąchsten B├Ąrengeneration wieder in der Lage ohne Reisebeschr├Ąnkungen die Jugend heranwachsen zu sehen.

    Liebe Gr├╝├če

  3. Dear Mervi!
    Nana is a wonderful playfull girl.

  4. Dear Mervi!
    What great pictures of a beautiful young polar bear!
    Nana looks gorgeous and is as charming and adorable as many of the growing young bears we have had the pleasure of knowing.
    I hope she stays this playful and fun-loving and the zoo finds a good new home when the time comes!
    Thank you for the update about Milana┬┤s and Sprinter┬┤s daughter!


  5. Thank you very much dear Mervi.
    Best wishes to Milana, Sprinter and Nana.

  6. Nana ist gro├č geworden und
    sehr spielfreudig. Das gelbe
    Ei ist beliebt. ­čśë

    Man sieht leider so selten etwas aus Hannover. So sind die Bilder eine wundervolle ├ťberraschung!
