Zoo to benefit from Lynx effect

Whipsnade Zoo celebrate the arrival of three lynx kittens.

The three female kittens were born in June but have now just begun to explore their new surroundings.

The triplets are the second litter to be born to Whipsnade’s rare European Lynx – one of Europe’s largest predators. They were born blind and helpless, weighing between 8.5oz and 15oz and will reach adult-size at around two-years-old.
