The public can now see four Canada lynx kittens at the Minnesota Zoo.

The two female and two male kittens were born May 6 and are now old enough to explore their new home on the Medtronic Minnesota Trail at the zoo. This is the zoo’s third litter of lynx in five years, zoo officials say.

Zoo officials say Canada lynx are listed as “threatened” under the Endangered Species Act and that the litter is an important addition to the species.
