Silence, please – Gerda, Nordi and Shauna are napping

In the previous report we saw a very active polar bear family and this report starts with action, too. However, the hot weather make even the most mobile family tired. 🙂

Gerda and Shauna say welcome to the visitors.

The keepers had brought some green branches for the family.

Gerda and Shauna examined the green leaves very thoroughly ….

…. while Nordi prefered to lie on the snow.

After a while even Nordi left the cold ‘matress’.

Playing in the heat made the young bears thirsty so mama Gerda’s milk bar was a bit crowded. 🙂

If there’s a will, there’s a way! Now everybody was satisfied. Just look at Gerda’s nice smile!

Nordi was soooo tired!

Hello Sis! Shall we take a trip to the Napland?

Aren’t they cute together?!

Different sleeping positions must be tried ….

Maybe this is comfortable enough ….

…. or maybe this will make us have sweet dreams?

Finally Nordi and Shauna agreed that being close to mama is the best quarantee for a nice nap!

Kai was awake. Maybe he wanted to make sure his family was given peace and quiet when they were having their well deserved nap.

  1. Dear Mervi!

    Thank you for the nice and funny story.
    The young polar-bears are so cute!
    I wish you and Vesa a beautiful Sunday.

    Hugs
    Yeo

  2. Dear Anna and Mervi
    It is noticable how big the Russian Polar bears are when you see how big Nordi and Shauna are compared with Gerda.
    Thank you both for this relaxing story.

  3. Liebe Mervi und liebe Anna,
    Eisbären halten gut die Hitze aus und im Zoo Novosibirsk gibt es sogar noch zur Abkühlung Schnee.
    Gerda lässt die großen Kinder noch an die Milchbar und dann wird zusammen gekuschelt.
    Vielen Dank, wunderschöne Bilder dieser schönen Bären.
    Liebe GrĂĽĂźe Moni K

  4. Dear Mervi and Anna!
    Thank you for these relaxing impressions of the Novosibirsk polar bear family!
    The current heat wave is simply unbearable and I wish I´d have a pool and a snow heap too…
    The bears are making the best of these hot summer days and look gorgeous.
    Watching the photos made me a bit sleepy too…

    Hugs
    Anke

  5. Dear Anna and Mervi!
    Thank you for the pictures of Gerda and her kids. The polar bears have the snow pile for chilling.
    Hugs

  6. Dankeschön wieder für die feinen Fotos dieser lieben Familie! Man möchte sich am liebsten mit dazukuscheln.

    Liebe GrĂĽĂźe von Brigitte.

  7. Dear Anna
    Dear Mervi

    The charming family is simply delightful in every situation.
    The way all three of them cuddle up for your nap is simply super sweet.

    Thank you so much for this adorable threat!

    Hugs,
    Anita

  8. Ach, watt seid Ihr doch so lieb und schön.

    Schmatz fĂĽr jede/n von Euch – ganz ungefährlich nur virtuell, ABER:
    from the heart!

  9. KAI steht seinen weiblichen Familienmitgliedern in nichts nach:
    Er ist ein wunderhübscher, weiß leuchtender junger Eisbärmann.
    Die letzten beiden Bilder in diesem Beitrag bestätigen das aufs Schönste.

  10. Die Riesenbabies beim trinken
    sind ein lustiger Anblick. 🙂
    Gerda ist sehr duldsam.

  11. So eine wunderbare Familie, danke fuer die lieben Bilder.

    Liebe Gruesse, Erika
