July was a very hot month even in Orsa but August offered more BEARable temperaturs both for the animals and the humans. Soon the Autumn is here and the brownies are preparing themselves for the hibernation.

What a great photo of this beautiful snow leopard!


These big cats are very shy and it’s difficult to see them during a visit in the park. I never saw them during my visits.


The Persian leopard is, of course, very beautiful, too!


King of the Tiger Mountain knows it’s important to drink a lot in the Summer time.


Brown bear mama seems to be telling something to her baby. I would like to know what.


This time of the year the bears must eat a lot to make sure they can manage the long hibernation. There’s still plenty of time until it’s time for the long nap but it’s wise to keep eating!

A carot is yammy and filled with vitamines!


We brownies love apples and every Autumn our two legged friends donate lots of them to us. Thank you in advance!


Little Miki is a skilful swimmer and diver. She spends hours in the water every day.


Challenging mama Eva is always great fun!

  1. Liebe Mervi,

    diese Katzen sind wunderschön und leider sind sie auch alle sehr gefaehrdet.
    Hier leben sie sicher und haben auch weitläufige Gehege.

    Die Braunbären verpassen sich mit ihrem langen Winterschlaf eine praktische
    Schlankheitskur, die manchen übergewichtigen Menschen auch zu empfehlen wäre….

    Miki ist munter und fidel und es ist so schade, dass ihr nicht hinfahren könnt,
    nachdem wir so lange auf Nachwuchs von Eva gewartet haben.

    Herzliche Grüße

  2. Dear Mervi
    Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos from the
    Orsa Predator Centre. Big cats have such marvelous markings.
    The brown bear cub is interesting to compare with
    little Miki.

  3. Der Mervi!
    The big cats are beautiful.
    The brown bear mother with her child is lovely.
    Mini is a wonderful kid. It is a pity, that we do not have many pictures of her and the other polar bears.

  4. Dear Mervi!
    The big cats in Orsa look just great.
    Almost every year I envy the brown bears their hibernation, especially when we don’t have a real winter with snow and ice and it’s just cold and wet. The fact that they can feast properly beforehand and then lose weight by themselves while they sleep is an added bonus… 😉
    The jumping photo of little Miki shows her joy of life very impressively.
    I hope that Vesa and you can go there soon and see Ewa and Miki live.
    Many thanks for the update!


  5. Thank you very much dear Mervi.
    Best wishes to Eva, Miki and all the other animals in Orsa.

  6. Dear Mervi, as usual, great pics from Orsa, especially the snow leopards. I agree with the others that it is in fact a pity that we cannot see more photos of Miki, but nevertheless, I am grateful for these ones as well as for the video. And indeed, some of the animals will prepare for the long Winter to come.
