Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo will celebrate their new Canada lynx kittens born in April with a “gender announcement” on Thursday, June 29, at 11 a.m. Guests may donate $2 at the front gate to receive a scratch ticket which reveals the kittens’ genders. $5 will purchase a “Team Boy” or “Team Girl” bracelet; $10 will purchase a pair of “Team Boy” or “Team Girl” sunglasses.
The gender reveal will take place in front of the lynx exhibit. Staff and guests will celebrate together. There also will be an enrichment activity provided for the adult male lynx: when he begins to play with a paper mache rabbit, there will be streamers inside to inform him of the gender of his offspring.
