Even the Rostov Zoo had happy polar bear family news in November last year.  We are glad to announce that the baby is a girl. On the 26th of April Cometa’s and Aion’s cub celebrated her 5 months birthday.


The little ice princess has got the name AIKA.


Mama Cometa encourages her daughter to play with the big ball.


Oh bear, the ball is big but little Aika manages to roll it forwards!


Hmm, this thingie needs a thorough inspection. It looks quite nice and harmless ….


This could be a start of a beautiful friendship!

  1. Liebe Mervi

    mit dem Namen AIKA verbinden wir eine sehr liebe Bärin, vor der Troll oftmals in herrlicher Pose flach auf dem Boden lag. Später war sie den beiden Youngsters Hertha und Wolodja eine liebevolle Ersatzoma.

    Diese kleine AIKA hat hoffentich ein langes und gesundes Leben vor sich!

    Herzliche Grüße

  2. I agree with everything Britta-Gudrun wrote above.
    Aika has a very special place. The new little Aika is already
    showing she will be a worthy successor.

  3. Dear Mervi!
    Aika is a lovely child. I hope she will have a long and happy life.

  4. Aika is so sweet, she’s got a beautiful name.


  5. Dear Mervi!
    What a sweetie pie! Thank you for the sweet photos!
    I am delighted that the name Aika, with which we associate memories of a special, dear and unforgettable bear, has now been given once again to an adorable bear cub.
    May little Aika have a beautiful and equally long life as her beloved predecessor!


  6. The little one is a delightful girl.
    The big ball is still huge and a challenge, but in time it will be a great toy for the little bear.

    Thank you dear Mervi.


  7. Ein hübsches und sehr aktives Kind ! 😀
