WATCH: Check out this raw video of the lynx kittens playing

MONTREAL – Three lynx kittens were introduced to the public for the first time on Thursday, ten weeks after they were born at the Montreal Biodome.

Signalling a new phase in their development, the male and two female kittens are moving with their mother into the Laurentian Maple Forest habitat.

The father lynx is kept separately in the night quarters, in case the mother perceives him as a threat.

Nursed by their mother, the three are healthy and growing fast: the kittens’ first medical exam revealed that they are growing even faster than last year’s new arrival.

It’s a rare chance for Montrealers to see lynx kittens playing together, interacting with their mother and exploring their environment.
