Nuenen – Towards a new year

27.12.2021 – Photos by Hans Muskens

The year 2021 will soon retire and leave the ‘scene’ to the year 2022. It’s time to remember what happened during the year but it’s also time to look forward.

It’s always interesting to see what the new fashion trends will be. This hairdo would be most becoming for everybody – don’t you agree?

The arctic foxes are masters of changing their fur colour depending on the season. This white fur is very beautiful ….

… but even this reddish shade is very chic and charmant.

We brownies rely on the fact that we’re always very presentable.

A cute brownie doesn’t need any ‘improvements’!

Polar bears are supposed to be white but who wants to look the same all year long? Oh no, we need to have a muddy look every now and then.

Of course, a white fur can be quite elegant, too.

We are already rehearsing nice poses for Hans’ camera and hope he will visit us often even next year.

His majesty’s prophile …..

…. and his impressive paws.

Eating lots of vitamines keep us healthy and happy! I’ve made sure I get my fair share of them! 🙂

Even if we brownies in zoos don’t hibernate in the same way as our collegues in the wild we need to eat before the Winter really comes.

Red panda presents his house. Maybe this is gives some new ideas for the architects …..

Looking forward to a better new year

With this card I want to thank Hans for all the photos during the year 2021. I wish him,  all the animals and their keepers in the Dierenrijk Nuenen a very happy new year 2022!

  1. Dear Mervi, dear Hans!

    Thanks for all the beautiful fotos of all this amszing animals.

    Happy new year, Erika

  2. Liebe Mervi,
    lieber Hans,

    durch die Todesnachricht von Katjuscha, wurde dieser Eintrag leider übershen.
    Deshalb etwas verspätet lieben Dank für den Foto-Querschnitt aus Nuenen!

    Die braunen Bären brauchen sich mit ihrem Fell nicht vor den Eisbären zu verstecken,
    beide Fellarten sind schön. Ebenso können Luchs und Polarfuchs sich der Konkurrenz stellen.

    Die Hauptsache ist, dass es allen gut geht und das sieht man ganz deutlich auf den
    schönen Fotos.

    Liebe Grüße
    Britta-Gudrun

  3. Dear Mervi and Hans!
    Thank you for these encouraging impressions from Nuenen.
    The sad news of Kati’s death has unfortunately put them on the background.
    All the animals make a good and healthy impression, and the photos show them all off beautifully.
    I was especially happy to see our armoured rhinos Jhansi and Narayani again, at least small parts of them…
    Mervi, the card with the little arctic fox is very cute.

    Hugs
    Anke

  4. Dear Hans & Mervi
