Two Healthy Caracal Kittens Emerge
Zoo welcomes Spring babies and proud parents!
Gulf Breeze, Florida – April 4, 2016 - Gulf Breeze Zoo is seeing double again when it comes to Spring babies these days. Mother Katarina, a 6 year old caracal, gave birth to two healthy kittens on February 28th.
Similar to household cats, baby caracal kittens are born with their eyes and ears closed and completely dependent upon their mother for safety and milk. For the first month the mother caracal will keep the kittens in a secluded, safe den while they develop and grow.
Now at just over a month old, visitors can finally see both babies, Koda and Kali wrestling and playing together just outside of the den under their mother's watchful eye.
