Polar Bears on thin ice

One of the good things about living in Northeast Greenland comes right here …

… a Polar Bear with 2 cubs, close to Ittoqqortoormiit …

… on an “ordinary” thursday morning.

And here comes a little story 🙂

“My mum, my brother and I were very hungry. We´d stayed close to this strange and noisy place all night, because we could smell something eatable. Finally, we went to look for it.”

L1090048

“We found a sealskin, with blubber on it!”

“My brother, who`s stronger then me, was the first to grab it. We followed him to some more solid ice.”

L1090057

“We were all very hungry. So my brother didn`t want to share with me. “

L1090055

“But my mom did!”

L1090067

“It tasted good. We decided to come back to see if we could find some more.”

L1090068

“I am leading on.”

L1090070

“Mum is big, tough and strong.”

L1090072

“She isn`t doing this for fun!”

L1090074

“She`s heavy, too, and, on thin ice, easily breaking through.”

L1090076

“Are you all right, mom?”

L1090077

“What`s going on?”

L1090078

“Why can`t we stay?”

L1090095

“Mom said, we had to get away. At least for now.”

  1. You did a great job of telling the Polar Bear’s story. Very entertaining. I’m going to share this with my Korean students. They love polar bears! Great post!
