We are very happy to announce that three lynx kittens were born at the Biodôme on June 4. The three kittens are healthy; their mother is taking good care of them, nursing and grooming them and giving them warmth.

Want to see the kittens? They are currently with their mother in their night quarters. As of this afternoon, a camera will allow visitors of the Biodôme to see the kittens at all times on a screen located in front of the lynx habitat.

If all goes well, the kittens should be able to integrate the habitat with their mother once they have been weaned and vaccinated. This period usually lasts up to 2.5 months and, for now, we are unable to say exactly when the public will get to see the kittens in the habitat.
