Germany: Hanover Adventure Zoo

Yesterday I got two postcards from Germany. One of them comes from Hanover, the capital of Lower Saxony. I sent the card to me when I was there.
The card shows a polar bear (Ursus maritimus) in the "Hanover Adventure Zoo". The zoo was opened in 1865 and in the 1990s the zoo was modernised with new natural compounds. The zoo is now divided in seven theme worlds (Zambezi, Gorilla Mountain, Yukon Bay, Jungle Palace, Outback, Mullewapp, Meyers Farm). The polar bear lives in Yukon Bay which is the latest theme world (opened 2010). It constitutes the Yukon Territory in Canada and domiciled the animals of the North.
