‘Inquisitive’ lynx kittens at Bristol wildlife attraction to be named by public

Two “playful and inquisitive” lynx kittens at the Wild Place Project in Bristol are due to be named by the public.

The pair, believed to be the first lynx kittens born in a UK zoo this year, will be named by the public based on results from a Facebook poll.

The shortlist includes Viking-inspired names Ragnar and Lagertha, Lars and Sigrid, after characters from Eurovision film The Story Of Fire Saga, and Kinsey, in tribute to UK caves where lynx bones have been discovered.

We'd love to see your best snaps of our new family of four. 📸👇Read more about our lynx family here and find out – do lynx meow or roar?wildplace.org.uk/news/lynx-meow-roar

A spokesman for the Wild Place Project said: “The pair are becoming more playful and inquisitive, and venturing out of their den in the woodland undergrowth more frequently.

“Despite now being more adventurous, the pair are still under the watchful eye of first-time mother Loka, who is never too far away.”
