After the wonderful time we had spent with the Polar Bears, Jeanette told us that we were going to have an additional treat as “friends” of the Zoo. She had arranged for us to go inside the Elephant House.

Being able to feed Nuka and Quillak was only the first stage of the visit to the Polar Bear house. We were also going to be able to meet Malik and Nord.

Thursday in Aalborg was a special day thanks to Jeanette Johnsen and Susanne Hansen, who had organised with the Zoo as “Friends of the Zoo” for us to meet and feed the Polar Bears, with one of the keepers.

As the day got into its swing, I had been joined by Molly Merrow. Molly took a shot of me chatting to “Muddy Paws”. Malik was very relaxed about Nord and allowed him to follow her around.

The train from Copenhagen and a bus link had been very full but I still arrived with plenty of time to check into my hotel and get some food before getting to the Zoo. I even managed to see the Polar Bears from the road!

On Saturday I was very fortunate that Inge came to see me to show me her home zoo. I wish I had had more time to spend with her, but my flight home was in the afternoon rather than the evening.

Now and again Imaq decided to play with the imitation ice sheet floating in the pool. However, she soon lost interest in it, as she realised it was not very tasty.

Imaq has learnt that Lynn makes sure she gets her share of any food that arrives in the enclosure. Imaq also knows that Lynn can provide a very nourishing meal and makes her wishes known.

A large tree branch in the water provided Lynn with another opportunity to teach Imaq that she would have to challenge another Polar Bear to anything she wanted for herself.

There is now deep water in the enclosure and it was soon clear that Lynn used it to teach Imaq some lessons. Both bears dived into the water again and again.
