Today is the last real summerday of 2009. Autumn is in the air. We therefore decided to spend this beautiful day in Järvzoo (Jaervzoo) which is just around the corner. The animals living in the park are all living wild in the Swedish nature.
The Goddess of Fortune was with us today, and gave us the possibility to see almost all animals, except for the red fox and the golden eagle.
Brown bears are a natural part of the Swedish nature. Miss Winty met one when walking in the forrest last year. Both she and the bear decided to turn their backs and leave.
This bear mother is locked up behind a fence, and wasn't really interested in me.
The wolverine is a preditor you don't want to meet. It's much more aggressive than bears. This one however was posing for me for more than 10 minutes.
Wolverine is 'järv' (jaerv) in Swedish. And naturally both the zoo and the small town at the foot of the mountain got their names after the wolverine
