This time of the year the brown bears are planning their hibernation. Polar bears don’t take a Winter nap but even they slow down during the Autumn and the Winter.

The Summer is turning into the Autumn now. Soon the golden October will paint the trees in different shades of yellow and red. The polar bear family in Nuenen wouldn’t mind a cooler weather.

16.6.2020 – Photos by Hans Muskens At least the zoos have gone back to a ‘next to normal status’ so our polar bear family in Nuenen can enjoy not only each other’s company but even meet their visitors and fans. Henk (?) has caught sight of the two legged creatures. Come on Frimas and kids! […]

Polar bear family life in Nuenen

Jan 15th, 2020 | By | Category: Dierenrijk Nuenen

15.1.2020 – Photos by Hans Muskens The darker shade of white seems to be the latest fashion for the polar bears in Nuenen. Maybe Nivi and Elva are hoping for some snow that would make their furs white and shiny …. Let’s hope they will see some snow flakes during this very ‘odd’ Winter! Even […]

17.12.2019 – Photos by Hans Muskens Nivi and Elva have celebrated their first birthday and on the same day the Dierenrijk Nuenen announced that Nivi is actually a boy – not a girl as has been believed so far. No matter what gender the twins have – they are cuter than cute! I’m sure you […]



Our furry and feathered friends in Nuenen in November

Nov 23rd, 2019 | By | Category: Dierenrijk Nuenen

23.11.2019 – Photos by Hans Muskens In many zoos the polar bears can enjoy the snow but Frimas, Nivi and Elva must wait a little. Hopefully there will be white stuff even in their enclosure! Wild water games make the waiting really fun – and the water has a very pleasant cold temperature! 🙂 Oh […]
