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

Oct 12th, 2018 | By | Category: 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 […]



Quality time with Nora and Ranzo

Jul 23rd, 2018 | By | Category: Nora and Ranzo in Vienna

23.7.2018 by Evi from Tallinn In nature it’s not always so easy for animals to get food. To keep the polar bears in action while getting food in the zoo, too, the keepers put some food (with some water) into the plastic canister. The bears have to pour the sweets (with the water) out from […]



A rainy day in Vienna

13.6.2018 by Evi from Tallinn On the 15th of May it only rains and rains already from the midnight.The air temperature is only +13, when the day before was +24. It’s a quiet day in the zoo –  there are only few visitors.This is, of course, nice – it’s better to watch the bears, take pictures […]

21.5.2018 by Evi from Tallinn On the 10th of May I flew to Vienna again to visit “my” little favourite – the polar bear Nora for the second time. Now she’s together with the Finnish male polar bear Ranzo. I also brought some toys for the bears (the little balls and pipes – familiar to […]
