Vienna – Finja is soon as big as mama Nora

21.4.2021 – Photos by Jutta Kirchner

Due the covid-19 situation the Vienna Zoo Schönbrunn is closed since the 1st of April until further notice. The photos in this article were taken in March.

Finja and Nora found a yammy ice cake. I’m not sure what Nora’s facial expression tells us …. 🙂

Finja seems to like the cake and wants to take the treasure to a safer place.

For the time being Finja weighs the respectable 166 kg. Mama Nora’s weight is 235 kg so very soon the daughter is equally big as her mother.

Even though Finja wants to eat a lot in order to grow bigger she’s willing to share the yammy cake with Nora.

Oh bear, even eating can be quite exhausting! 🙂

The white thingie sometimes serves as Finja’s teddybear. 🙂

Ok, Teddy, you can go now because I have things to do.

Swimming and diving are, of course, on Finja’s schedule every day.

And now to something completely different as the members of Monty Python used to say. 🙂

The blue barrel needs a lesson!

The barrel is quite big but it’s no challenge for the power girl Finja. 🙂

Papa Ranzo seems to have something very important to say …. Unfortunately I’m not fluent in polarbearish. 🙂

Dear Jutta! Thank you so much for these lovely photos! On behalf of the readers of Knuti’s Weekly I wish you and the polar bears in Schönbrunn a pleasant Spring time!

  1. Liebe Mervi,

    Finja ist eine prachtvolle Jungbärin geworden und sprüht vor Energie.
    Ihre Größe ist schon beträchtlich und so wird sie eine
    große Dame mit den großwüchsigen Genen ihrer
    russischen Mutter und natürlich von Ranzo aus dem hohen Norden!

    Liebe Grüße und Danke an Jutta für die tollen Fotos!
    Britta-Gudrun

  2. Dear Jutta and Mervi!
    Thank you for the wonderful pictures. Finja is a big girl now. She has many toys to play 🙂
    It is good to see Ranzo too.
    Hugs
    Ludmila

  3. I’m delighted to see beautiful photos
    of FINJA and NORA ..
    and many thanks to Mrs. Jutta Kirchner !
    But .., I’m sorry, dear Mervi and Ludmila,
    where do you see Ranzo here ???

    Greetings from Tallinn,
    Evi

  4. Wow – Finja hat sich toll entwickelt.
    Ein Pracht-Kind ! 🙂

  5. Dear Jutta and Mervi
    Thank you for these splendid photos of the Polar Bear family in Schoenbrunn.
    Finja seems to be growing fast and enjoying herself.

  6. Liebe Mervi und liebe Jutta!
    Nora und Finja sind zwei sehr hübsche Eisbärinnen und zur Zeit noch ein gutes und buchstäblich eingespieltes Mutter/Tochter Team. Es ist immer ein bisschen traurig, wenn die Kindheit der Jungtiere zu Ende geht und einem nur übrig bleibt, eine glückliche Zukunft und ein gutes Leben in einem angemessenen Zuhause für sie zu erhoffen…
    Ich wünsche Finja nur das Allerbeste – ihren Eltern Nora und Ranzo natürlich auch!

    Liebe Grüße
    Anke

  7. Wunderschön, danke für die tollen Bilder.

    Liebe Grüße, Erika
