The Nashville Zoo has a new temporary addition on its hands!
The zoo welcomed a female baby Eurasian Lynx on May 4th!!!
And the funny thing was - the zoo wasn't sure the baby's mom was even pregnant until she actually gave birth! Lolz!
“We suspected that our Lynx might be pregnant due to a slight weight gain but never had confirmation. The cub arrived on its estimated due date based on the data the keepers collected, and she’s now being hand-raised by our animal care staff. She will eventually join an educational outreach program at another zoo.”
You're not going to keep her with her mommy??? But won't they miss each other!
We guess it'll be good for other zoo patrons to learn about how amazing these animals are, but we still can't help but feel a little sad for the cub!
Nothing can diminish her cuteness, though!
