As we all know the Russian ballet dancers are world famous and probably the best in the world. That’s why it’s no wonder Gerda and Kai move so graciously in the water – despite their big size!

The polar bears in the Novosibirsk Zoo certainly have a long Winter. I guess the Winter with lots of snow is the best possible ‘enrichment’ for the white family.

Gerda and Kai can’t hide that they’re very happy together – and why should they hide their feelings? 🙂 It looks like this day started with some hide-and-seek.
