Polar bear. These polar bears in Ranua zoo are only polar bears in Finland. I only saw this one, who really liked his blue ball. Third picture: Polar bear pushed ball deep under water and then released it, causing ball to jump high to the air.
More polar bears: Kolmården 2002
Birds. Eagle, crow, hawk and owl. Another crow in Ranua (not the one on picture) was probably most intelligent bird I have ever met. I didn't only talk, but it also played with me with a wooden stick for a while.
