When Nel visited the Diergaarde Blijdorp in Rotterdam on the 14th of April she met Wolodja and Nivi who seem to be getting along just fine.

When Nivi came to this zoo he was a bit stressed when Wolodja – also called Wollie – was around. Now he’s more relaxed.

Together although not so close to each other.


Nivi seems to be planning a trip to the Napland …


…. and he bought a ticket. ­čÖé


Even Wolodja looks rather tired ….


… maybe he took the same flight as Nivi on their way to the Napland … ­čÖé

  1. Dear Nel and Mervi

    Thank you for showing us Wolodja and Nivi.
    I am not surprised that Nivi found Wolodja a bit much.
    Tonja was always having to tell him to calm down.

    dear Nel,

    even self-confident bears have their weaknesses and Volodya is no exception!
    Sometimes the situation relaxes when both do the same thing, just sleep.
    Yawning is also contagious…

    Thanks for the update from the Diergaarde Blijdorp and best regards!

  3. Dear Nel and dear Mervi!
    When I see these two tired bear men, I get quite sleepy myself.
    I hope Wolodja and Nivi will continue to grow closer and perhaps even become friends, provided their hormones don’t get in the way.


  4. Dear Nel and Mervi!
    It is great to see Wolodja and Nivi relaxed. I hope they will be friends.

  5. So beautiful relaxing Bears, thanks for showing!

    Hugs, Erika
