It’s morning so Shauna and Nordi are doing their ‘start a new day exercises’. It doesn’t happen so often all three can be caught in a same photo but this time the polar bear family wanted to surprise their fans.

Hot weather but cool polar bears!

I have missed the polar bear family in Novosibirsk but now the zoo is open again so our friends Anna and Arkadij could visit Gerda, Shauna, Nordi and Kai.

The old man Winter has retired and the young Miss Spring has made her entry even in the Novosibirsk but I have saved some Winter photos though and want to show them to the readers of this magazine now.

The snow has melted away and the polar bears’ pool is free of ice. The trees are turning green so it’s Spring! Even this zoo is closed for the time being.

Lovely family portraits of Gerda, Shauna and Nordi

It’s not so easy to catch this polar bear family together in a photo but Arkadi is a master photographer and succeeded in taking a whole series of fantastic pictures.

After the snow games it’s nice to travel to the Napland!

Unlike many other places Novosibirsk has had – and is still having – a real Winter with lots of snow. I guess many polar bears are a bit envious to our white fluffy friends in this zoo.

Another new day has began in the Novosibirsk Zoo and our polar bear family is curiously wondering what this day will bring them. The keepers had arranged a nice surprise for them.

Cute faces and big mouths

When the polar bear family – Gerda, Shauna and Nordi – came out from their den there was a lovely surprise waiting for them. The keepers hadn’t forgotten it was the Valentine’s Day.

It’s a  snowy morning in Novosibirsk and the polar bear family is having a morning meeting. It looks like there were very lively discussions between mama Gerda and her twins.
