10.7.2020 – Photos by Arkadij Laptenko

It’s morning so Shauna and Nordi are doing their ‘start-a-new-day-exercises’. It looks like it’s going to be another hot day.


Oh, maybe a couple of minutes more sleep …..



…. but mama Gerda is determined to get her kids going. ­čÖé


We’d better hurry, the visitors are already waiting for us!


Come on, mama! Move it, move it!!!


Hmmm, we can see many friends there ….


Look, there’s Arkadi …. and Anna …. and Nina and Oksana ….


They want to take nice photos of us so let’s pose as super models for their cameras.


It doesn’t happen so often all three can be caught in a same photo but this time the polar bear family wanted to surprise their fans.


What white furs they all have! Maybe the rolling in the snow is the secret?


Dear visitors, please, don’t forget to keep the distance!!!


A polar bear version of a Happy Hour!


Maybe a traffic light is needed?


Kai is living close to his family but I guess he sometimes feels Gerda is very far away.


The hot weather makes the twins sleepy ….


… and even the mama bear wants to take a nap.


Privet! Are you still there?


Thank you for watching us! We’ll be back soon!

  1. Dear Arkadij and Mervi
    Gerda and her kids always seem lively and beautifully furry despite the old fashioned enclosure. The keepers in Novosibirsk must know how to keep them busy and happy.

  2. Ich freu mich ├╝ber “meine” liebe Eisb├Ąrenfamilie und dass es ihnen gut geht!

    Liebe Gr├╝├če von Brigitte.

  3. Dear Mervi and Arkadij!
    Thank you for this nice report about the polar bears in Novosibirsk!
    What a charming and gorgeous looking family!
    I┬┤m happy for them that they can cool down in their pool.

    We learned that nearly all bears, not only polar bears, love sometimes to present themselves in front of the fascinated public – not only for the benefit of getting some treats but also… They really seem to enjoy the attention they arouse.
    So their visitors are fortunately able to get such beautiful and heart-warming photos of them.


  4. Thank you very much dear Mervi and Arkadij.
    Best wishes to Gerda, Kai, Shauna and Nordi.

  5. H├╝bsche Kinder ! ­čÖé
    Danke f├╝r die Fotos.

  6. Dear Mervi and Arkadij

    Hugs Inge

  7. Liebe Mervi und lieber Arkadij,
    Nordi ist schon so gro├č wie Mama Gerda und ich hoffe nur dass die Zwillinge noch lange bei der Mutter
    bleiben k├Ânnen.
    Wie immer begeistert mich diese Familie, alles Eisb├Ąrensch├Ânheiten.
    Vielen Dank f├╝r die sch├Ânen Bilder und Mervis passenden Text.
    Liebe Gr├╝├če Moni K
