It’s not easy to catch Gerda, Shauna and Nordi in a photo but here’s one. I wonder what caught this nice family’s interest. Maybe they saw Arkadij with his camera and decided to pose nicely?

In the Novosibirsk Zoo the polar bears have a little snow even in the Summer time. There’s no doubt it’s very much appreciated by Gerda, Nordi and Shauna.



Gerda almost stole the show!

The keepers in the Novosibirsk Zoo are certainly doing their best to keep their polar bears happy and occupied. There are always new interesting toys for them.

One morning Nordi and Shauna asked Gerda if Father Frost had visited them during the night. There was snow, a tree and even a nice gift waiting for them!

Even the polar bear kids get bored sometimes and it takes some innovative thinking from their mothers and, of course, their keepers to keep the small fur balls occupied and happy.

The Summer is the highlight of the year for all gardeners. Even the keepers of the polar bears in the Novosibirsk Zoo thought some green stuff would be nice for their white fluffy friends.

Mornings are the times when plans for the day are made. So even in the Zoo Novosibirsk. Gerda has closed the milk bar after giving Nordi and Shauna their breakfast. It looks like they ate a lot!



Patience is Gerda’s middle name

Mama needs some rest every now and then but she also needs to be ‘activated’ …. Gerda’s twins are very innovative finding activities to keep their mama busy! – The kids even have a ‘gift’ to you readers!

Now that Shauna and Nordi are very mobile it’s difficult to catch the whole family in photos. However, with a little patience it can be done. – The kids allow Gerda to have a time-out.



Water is a nice toy!

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!
