I visited NORA & RANZO in the second week of September. It was still quite warm in Vienna – +23 … +27 degrees. My fluffy friends didn’t show themselves very often … and I never knew, when they decided to do that.



My 5th visit to NORA & RANZO in Vienna

Jun 10th, 2019 | By | Category: Nora and Ranzo in Vienna

10.6.2019 by Evi from Tallinn The 7th of June was a very hot day in Vienna – 29°C! However, it didn’t prevent Nora and Ranzo acting like movie stars. They were filmed for ads for the Tiergarten Schönbrunn to be shown in subways and at the airport. White, fluffy and roundish – in other words: […]

My 4th visit to NORA and RANZO in Vienna

Jan 30th, 2019 | By | Category: Nora and Ranzo in Vienna

30.1.2019 by Evi from Tallinn I visited Tiergarten Schönbrunn in early January and found Nora very active …. ….. while Ranzo prefered to be inactive. Ranzo seems to be thinking ‘Where does she get all that energy?’ One day, when Nora again played in the pool she managed to invite Ranzo to play with her, […]

8.11.2018 by Evi from Tallinn The bears of the Tallinn Zoo have always loved to play with all kinds of pipes. When Nora was a small bear, her big favorites were 2 coarse short drainage pipes. She often raised a tube to her neck or put it around her body, she swam with them and […]



My third visit to Nora and Ranzo in Vienna

12.10.2018 by Evi from Tallinn On September 27th, I flew to Vienna again to visit “my” cute polar bear lady Nora. My third meeting with the polar bears in Vienna was very different compared to the previous times. The both bears – Nora and Ranzo – spent most of the time inside and it was […]



Nora and Ranzo behave in a similar way

Sep 27th, 2018 | By | Category: Nora and Ranzo in Vienna

27.9.2018 by Evi from Tallinn Because Nora didn’t have a large pool in Tallinn, but only a small one – like a bath – she initially feared a bit of diving in a deep pool in Vienna. For the present, of course, she isn’t afraid of it. Ranzo is a master in diving! I noticed, […]



Everything unusual interests Nora and Ranzo

Aug 30th, 2018 | By | Category: Nora and Ranzo in Vienna

30.8.2018 by Evi from Tallinn The polar bears area in the Vienna Zoo is partly bordered by cliffs. Into these rocks are also built the keepers’ rooms. Because the windows of these rooms are in the side of the bears enclosure, it’s very interesting for Nora and Ranzo sometimes look in. Everything unusual seems interesting! For […]
