Braunbär Felix


Self-confident and curious

Rescued with his brother and his mother

Brown bear Felix got together with his mother Maya (1983-2016) and his brother Ben from a german zoo called Schwarzwaldpark Löffingen to our BEAR SANCTUARY Müritz. For many years, the three bears shared one small concrete enclosure. The bear brothers descend from Lothar, the very first bear that got to our sanctuary. He died in 2019.

Ben and Felix are playing

Favorite thing to do: Playing with his brother Ben.

Wrestling between brothers

Felix loves to test his strength during wrestlings with his brother. Most of the time his wins, but somethings Ben is stronger. When both bears play in the water, it always looks very dramatic. 

The brothers look very alike, it's hard to tell who is who. They spend most of the time together and roam through the woods. Their bond is so strong, that they even hibernate together in winter. 

From shy to self-confindent 

Felix is about 2 m tall and looks a bit slimer than his brother Ben. When Felix first arrived here, he was very shy and reserved. He fled from the other bears and withdrew in the forest. But with time, he turned into a self-confident and curious bear.
