In the Novosibirsk Zoo Nordi and Shauna have discovered the pleasures of water and spend a lot of time in the wet element. They seem to have a never ending energy just like all polar bear cubs!

Shared joy is a double joy!

One morning when Nordi and Shauna woke up they didn’t know what to do. Well, the best thing to do was, of course, to consult mama Gerda! Naturally, mama could help her kids!

Gerda’s twins have names now!

The 26th of May was the traditional Bear Day in the Novosibirsk Zoo and, of course, it was the perfect time to announce the names of Gerda’s sweet cubbies.

This morning Gerda wanted to make her kids join her in the water. However, it took some time before she could get the twins’ full attention.

Today is the Mother’s Day in many countries and Gerda’s twins decided to celebrate their mama today, too. They asked me to make something nice to their mother. I hope they’re satisfied with this card!

Gerda and her twins are patiently – well, as patiently as they can – for the catering service. Alhough mama’s milk bar is the kids’ favourite restaurant they have started to eat even some solid food.

Help, mama’s leaking!

A new day has started in the Novosibirsk Zoo and Gerda’s twins are awake …. well, almost awake anyway. Sometimes it’s nice to sleep a little longer in the morning.

Gerda’s twins have no names yet but I’m quite sure their mama calls them Sweetie and Cutie. As I already wrote in the previous report the ‘official’ names will be announced on a special Bear Day on the 26th of May in the Novosibirsk Zoo.

Gerda is a loving and caring mother who wants to keep an eye on her twins all the time. Sometimes she has to run when the cubs have disappeared from her sight.

I have always thought that watching sleeping polar bears is one of the most wonderful sights in the world! That’s why this report from Novosibirsk is about napping sweeties.
