Our wild cousins are celebrating the birth of triplets. Three tiny lynx kittens are born at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.
The all-girl trio, born in June to parents Maja and Timo, have spent the last few weeks tucked up in their den but have just begun to explore outside.
Now they are big enough to venture out on their own, the playful kittens can be spotted perched on logs and playing hide and seek with each other in the long grass while mum keeps a close watch.
Senior keeper Carole Day said: “Mum’s doing a sterling job of looking after all three kittens. They are starting to become more adventurous and independent and are having lots of fun exploring their paddock.”
