Karlsruhe – When Charlotte met Lloyd

As you know Lloyd has left Bremerhaven and lives now in the Karlsruhe Zoologischer Stadtgarten (Zoo). The first days he had to spend alone examining his new home but now he and Charlotte have been introduced to each other.

Lloyd is a jolly good fellow with a handsome face.


This nice smile makes him a real charmeur.


In order to maintain his good looks he makes sure to have enough protein. ­čÖé This piece of meat seems to be to his satisfaction.


Charlotte seems to know there’s something special going on ….


…. maybe I have a secret admirer! It’s best to put the broadest smile on my face.


Lloyd – I can smell a lady bear ….


… oh yeah, there’s a lady bear somewhere very close.


I wonder if she’s beautiful … well, of course, she is. All polar bear ladies look smashing to me!


Now I can see her …..


Even Lottchen has caught sight of Lloyd.


Both bears were so excited that they needed to cool off in the water. ;.)





Hey, there’s the lady bear ….


Lloyd was right – Lottchen is beautiful!


Hello baby! Fr├Ąulein Lottchen, I presume. Let me introduce myself – I’m Herr Lloyd von Bremerhaven.


It looks like sweet music was composed from the very beginning between these two.


There’s certainly love in the air.


On behalf of the readers of this magazine I wish Charlotte and Lloyd a happy life together!

  1. Liebe Petra,

    es sieht gut aus mit den beiden und Charlotte scheint an ihrem neuen Partner interessiert zu sein.
    Lloyd war lange in Bremerhaven beheimatet und Charlotte scheint auch ihm zu gefallen.
    Also alles bestens im Zoo Karlsruhe.

    Vielen Dank f├╝r die sch├Ânen Fotos und weiterhin viel Gl├╝ck f├╝r das neue Paar!


  2. Dear Petra and Mervi
    Thank you for this lovely report that shows Lloyd and Charlotte getting together in Karlsruhe.
    I visited Lloyd in 2016 and 2020 in Bremerhaven so am delighted that he seems to be settling in.

  3. Liebe Petra!
    Ich freue mich, dass Charlotte und Lloyd sich offensichtlich gut finden und n├Ąher kennenlernen m├Âchten…
    Dennoch habe ich gemischte Gef├╝hle, weil ich Lloyd eigentlich mit dem Zoo am Meer verbinde. Er wird dort sicher sehr vermisst.
    Aber er sieht prima aus und scheint – Toi Toi – seinen Umzug gut verkraftet zu haben.
    Ich w├╝nsche ihm Gesundheit und Wohlergehen und ein sch├Ânes Leben mit Charlotte.
    Vielen Dank f├╝r die feinen Fotos!

    Herzliche Gr├╝├če

  4. Liebe Petra und Mervi!
    Ich hoffe Lloyd und Charlotte werden gute Zeit zusammen haben.

  5. Dear Petra,
    What a beautiful love story is begging. They certainly seem to be fond of one another. These are heartwarming photos about two beautiful bears in the magical zoo of Karlsruhe, a very fine home for polar bears.

    I hope you will share more of their adventures as Charlotte and Lloyd get to know each other.
