ERIE, Pa. (AP) – The Erie Zoo’s lynx triplets are finally on display, the first cubs at the zoo since 1971.

The Erie Times-News says the cubs were first displayed Thursday.

Three lynx kittens and their mother peer out from their enclosure on the first day the kittens were outside of their den and available for the public to see, at the Erie Zoo in Erie, Pa. Three kittens were born June 3, 2015 to mother Martina, upper right, and father Russell, who will be introduced to the kittens in about a month, according to Scott Mitchell, executive director of the Erie Zoo.

They were born June 30 to Martina and her partner, Russell, who arrived in Erie from a zoo in Quebec last year. That marked the first time the zoo has had adult lynx since the mid-1960s and last week’s birth is the first time the zoo has played host to lynx cubs since 1971.

The cubs, a female named Nuka and brothers Nome and Sitka will be on display except during severe weather.
