Lara and her cub, Nanook, were not at all on the Tuesday. However, all was not lost, as Bill and Antonia were able to entertain me. I also managed to visit the Asia World.

Bill is a large and very athletic Polar Bear, who normally spends a lot of time trying to communicate with Lara, at the wall which divides them. With Lara inside, Bill was more interested in using his enclosure.

My trip to Gelsenkirchen started with a major disappointment. Because of the problem of the green stuff in the pools in the enclosures, Lara and her cub, Nanook, were only visible behind the grill in their den.

I was able to spend a lot of quality time just sitting on a bench in the shade watching Tonya resting or waiting for something to happen, such as some food to be delivered.



My Autumn Trip to Berlin: Volodya

In addition to Katjuscha, there is another Polar Bear for the moment in Berlin Zoo. Volodya (I the English transliteration) is in the Zoo because Tonya may be expecting a cub and needs as much quite time as possible.

Thursday 6th September – I was very excited to see Katjuscha again after my last visit in April, so I made straight for her enclosure.

First thing in the morning will either find the family resting after a busy night or early morning session, but sometimes they are still playing in the lower pool.



Mama Malik – The family playing in the water

28.8.2018 by Ralph
Like Valeska in Zoo am Meer or her mother, Victoria, in Scotland, Malik is a large and very attractive female polar bear. One of the advantages of the absence of grass and mud, is that she and her cubs are usually very clean and fluffy.

My packed tuna sandwiches from England were too much for Nuka to resist. The glass facing the upper part of the lower enclosure has a large shelf where the water flows into the main pool.
