Launch of the North large area of the zoo of Mulhouse

Hello to all !

Today was a great day : the launch of the area north of the zoo of Mulhouse, which hosts species such as the polar foxes, muskox or even the new stars of the zoo of Mulhouse : Polar bears !

If the first species were visible for some time, Polar bears have made their first public appearance on the occasion of this event ! Vicks, SESI and Tina have dabbled in their very large basin for the pleasure of small and major !

Here's a quick overview of the day in picture ! Good visit and see you soon at the Zoo !

It would seem that Sesi has felt the fish above the waterfall jump !

Muskoxen

Polar bears are awesome, certainly, but muskoxen have anything to defend also ! You don't know why ? Take a look on This video which shows quite well the “power of the beast… It is not nice small cows !

Polar foxes

Rather lazy, they are less dangerous than other species of the far North area. But they are very cute when they sleep and dream that they run after prey !

Their pen is the same as that of the chouette Lapone, but it is not yet visible.

Playful displays to learn more about each species.
