There’s still lots of snow in Ranua but some Spring signs can be seen, too. Malla and Jemma have been awake for some weeks now so they’ve been able to enjoy the snow before it melts away.

Today the keepers and the vets had a chance to check the gender of Lynn’s baby and they found out the sweetie is a girl. They could even state that the ice princess is a healthy and mobile cubbie.

Terve! Hello! This is the young bachelor Sisu in Ranua writing again. I’m trying to get used to live alone in the enclosure next to my mama’s enclosure. Of course, I miss her but I’m a big boy now and this is how life goes for a polar bear.

Lynn’s baby is growing rapidly. The keepers estimate that the cubbie now weighs about 10 kilos. That’s 20 times the weight when the baby was born on the 1st of December!

Terve! Hello! It’s me – your pal Sisu writing again. We still have a wonderful Winter here in Ranua with lots of snow and frost.

I have some news for you, too! Mama and I are now living in separate enclosures. She thought I’m big enough to have my own room.



Snow is compact water!

Our little polar bear cub is very curious and examines the enclosure with great energy and enthusiasm. We have emptied the pool in the enclosure from water and instead filled it with straw.

Lynn and her cubbie can now be seen in the old polar bear enclosure in the zoo daily. Of course, it’s mama Lynn who decides if they want to be out or stay indoors.
