The bear Glok from Skåne’s zoo cool down with a special bear ice cream: fruits, berries and other goodies are frozen and become a perfect snack in the heat.

We all scream for ice cream As the temperature rises around the country, Skåne’s Animal Park takes ice-cold measures to keep the park’s animals cool. With baths and special ice cream, animal caretaker helps the animals feel good in the summer heat. During hot summer days it is important to stay cool and get enough water: it applies to both guests and animals in Skåne’s Zoo. Extra bathing opportunities and cooling ice cream are a couple of methods that help the animals feel good in the summer. In a special day program, guests can, among other things, come along with the attendant and bathe the linden red pigs, shower the elks and invite the bears to “bear ice cream”. - Most animals appreciate a cooling ice cream, so we make special animal ice creams. Fruits, berries, corn and dog food are put in water and into the freezer. In addition to the cooling ice cream, it is a great enrichment for the animals, says animal keeper Cornelia Hermansson. The animals that enjoy bathing have been given extra bathing opportunities in the summer heat: linden pigs and wild boar get cold showers and refilled mud baths, the Golden eagle have a new splashing pond and the bear Glok has moved in together with his female Ester to a area with their own pool. The moose have a water spreader that is started a couple of times a day. - We are working to create understanding for all animals and to build a link between humans and animals, says Glenn André Viste Bøe COO. - The people, the guests of the park, and our animals should have it as good as possible during the summer here. And the animals just like us humans like to take a swim in the heat. We help them with that. MT MAGAZINE SWEDEN
