Not In Jersey: New Polar Bear At The Zoo New Polar Bear At The Zoo - Not In Jersey

New Polar Bear At The Zoo

Sunday, February 17, 2013

You all know how much we love the zoo, right? We visit a lot and I’ve posted about it enough to consider giving it it's own tag here on my blog! Sometimes I get tired of going, but luckily the zoo is always adding new things to make me want to keep visiting. Plus, I’m getting really close with this guy and I have to visit him often:

Anyway, the newest thing our zoo has is a brand new polar bear! The original polar bear hasn’t been with us very long, but now he has a friend. Her name is Berlin. (His name is Nikita). So a few weeks ago we got to see Berlin hanging out in the polar bear area by herself, but last week we got to see the two of them together for the first time.

This is Berlin hanging out in the water. Nikita likes to swim back and forth but she was just hanging.

So Nikita is pacing back and forth looking at Berlin in the water.

It’s so obvious that he wants to get in too!

He takes a seat.

He sticks his head in the water.

Finally he gets in!

It was apparently their first time together in the water. Even though Nikita was there first, Berlin is older than him and she has been bossing him around. I’m glad he decided to stand up to her! I’m hoping to see much more of them playing together in the future!
