Knut had a fishy meal

5.11.2021 – Photos by Gudrun

The photos of Knut enjoying a big fish were taken by Gudrun in September 2008.

This photo made me remember a funny episode from one of Knut’s feedings. Frau Weckert had brought a big salmon for him but first she threw some smaller fish to him. When Knut noticed the big fish he growled loud and made it clear he wanted to have it immediately. ­čÖé This was the only time I heard Knut making such noise.

Knut always had his meals on this special ‘dinner table’.

  3. Dear Mervi!
    I feel nostalgic when I see these pictures.
    Barely two years old, Knut looks as lanky as a fast-growing teenager. A beautiful young bear who actually still had his life ahead of him…

    Thank you for this nice episode, which shows that Knut could still be energetic later in adolescence when he wanted something. As a little bear, together with his keeper Thomas D├Ârflein, he was not shy at all and always made it very audible what he wanted.
    The last picture, my favourite, shows the lovable and cautious tinkerer carefully and prudently examining smaller objects.
    I miss this dear bear and think back fondly to those wonderful times.

    Liebe Gudrun!
    Danke f├╝r diese sch├Ânen, herzerw├Ąrmenden Bilder!

    Liebe Gr├╝├če
    Hugs

  4. Liebe Mervi,

    ach ja, Knut und sein Lachs, mit den ihn seine Fans gerne verw├Âhnten.
    Heute nicht mehr denkbar, dass Futter f├╝r die Tiere mitgebracht werden darf und dann
    auch noch zum sofortigen Verzehr, damals ein besonderes Privileg f├╝r Besucher und
    den Zauberb├Ąren mit den guten Tischmanieren.

    Auch ich liebe das letzte Bild sehr, auf dem er wie so oft ganz versunken ist
    in die Betrachtungen seiner kleinen Spielzeuge, die er sich mehr oder weniger
    auf seiner Anlage zusammensuchte.

    Auch dir, liebe Gudrun, vielen Dank f├╝r die tollen Fotos!
    Herzliche Gr├╝├če
    Britta-Gudrun

  5. Dear Gudrun and Mervi
    Going back to September 2008 when Knut had lost his
    carer, Thomas Doerflein, we see how much he had grown.
    He was not even two years old.
    Knut always made clear his impatience at not getting
    food when he wanted it.
    His long legs showed that he would at the age of 14 have been an impressive male Polar, just as he was a fine looking young bear.
