20.5.2018 von Monika aus Berlin Am 11.05.2018 habe ich den kleinen noch namenlosen Brillenbären mit seiner Mama Julia besucht. Es gibt leider selten Fotos von den Brillenbären im Tierpark. Das liegt wahrscheinlich auch daran, dass die mit Folie beklebte Scheibe das Fotografieren fast unmöglich macht. Die Folie hat auch noch grüne Querstreifen. Man muss versuchen […]
