The Oregon Zoo’s two new caracal kittens are now six-weeks-old and, with mom by their side, they have just started to explore their outdoor habitat in the zoo’s Predators of the Serengeti area. Beth Foster, the zoo’s lead caracal keeper, said:
They’ve spent a lot of time out of view of visitors so far. The space is still new and unfamiliar to them, so they’ve been hiding a lot, taking things slowly and sticking close to mom.
Under their mom’s watchful eye, the kittens ventured outside for the first time, exploring through hollow logs, hiding in the tall grass, and chirping for mom whenever they lost sight of her.
