Baby Lynxes in Vienna – level 3

12-06-2018 07:00

Two adorable lynx cubs were born at Vienna Zoo to a lynx family which is part of a program aimed at reintroducing the lynx into the wild in Europe.

Their mother gave birth to them in secret in a hollow tree stump, just as lynx do in the wild, and kept them hidden for the first two weeks of their life. The little cubs are blind during this period and take time to develop their eyesight.

Most recently, the babies made their public debut.

Difficult words: adorable (lovely, cute, sweet), lynx (a medium-sized wild cat with a short tail), cub (the young of big cats, foxes or bears), debut (the first time people can see something).
