Kai is inspecting his enclosure and making sure it’s ready to receive the white stuff.

Excellent jumping again! I don’t know if this is Shauna or Nordi but he/she certainly can fly!!

The kids are taking the last chances to enjoy swimming in their iceless pool ….

…. but I’m sure they’ll be enjoying the ice even more.

The white barrel has a different shape now.

Did I ever mention that there’s no such thing as an unbreakable toy?

I think I’m going to be a fashion designer – I have so many ideas!

Just watch this elegant Winter hat! OK, this might be a bit too cold for the humans but it’s perfect for polar bears!

You must admit the hat is very chic and charmant. I’m waiting for a call from the Polar Bear Vogue!

We Russian polar bears are famous for our fine furs but we have cute faces as well!

Mama Gerda can be very proud of her twins.

Mama wants to take a nap but we can’t sleep now that we’re waiting for the snow!

Arkadi can read the polar bears’ mind! 🙂

  1. Dear Mervi and Arkadij!
    Though times are rough and everything is getting worth with f… Corona these fabulous photos are mood-lifting.
    This polar bear family is special and wonderful. In spite of their poor enclosure all of them enjoy life to the fullest and look gorgeous! And they are quite courageous designers considering what they made of the white barrel 😉
    The keepers created a very affectionate Halloween decoration for them. It is obvious that they love their bears!
    Thank you for this delightful impressions.
    I wish the bears a soon coming winter and lots of snow and ice! But it should stay in Siberia for a while…

    Dear Mervi!
    Your subtitles are again the cherry on the cake!

    All the best
    hugs
    Anke

  2. Liebe Mervi,

    das sind wieder wunderschöne Bilder und mit deinen witzigen Kommentaren natĂŒrlich doppelt passend.
    Sie lassen auch das triste Gehege etwas vergessen und deshalb wĂŒnsche ich den vieren auch ganz schnell ganz viel Schnee.

    Liebe GrĂŒĂŸe
    Britta-Gudrun

  3. Sorry, I meant worse of course…

    Hugs
    Anke

  4. Dear Arkadij!
    You brought the wonderful pictures again. The keepers arranged very nice decorations for the bears. The winter is not far away in Novosibirsk.
    Hugs

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

  6. Dear Arkadij and Mervi
