Cheyenne Mountain Zoo welcomes newborn lynx kittens

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Staff at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo are welcoming a new litter of Canada lynx kittens.

The four kittens were born May 6 to mom Migina. Zookeepers say she’s a protective and aware mom who’s taking great care of her babies. This is Migina’s third litter.

Keepers also say the kittens are already learning to walk but in doing so, are stumbling a bit on their big feet.

The kittens won’t be officially on display to the public for “a little while,” but that can be seen in a sneak peek in their off-exhibit area from the Grizzly Boardwalk.

The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
