The kitten was born in the middle of May and this is the first time it has been pictured playing with its parents and padding through its home in Port Lympne Wild Animal Park.

The Carpathian is a sub species of Eurasia lynx. Carpathian lynx are found in the forests of the Carpathian Mountains one of the last remaining wilderness regions in Europe.

Lynx use stealth and rely on short bursts of speed to capture prey. They can also jump two metres into the air to catch birds.
