LOGAN – The Willow Park Zoo has a new addition, a male and female lynx named Bix and Bonnee. The lynx have been at the zoo for the past three months, adjusting to new diets and lives while their exhibit was being built. As of last week, the exhibit was finished and the public can now view the lynx.
The lynx is closely related to the bobcat. They are commonly found in Canada and Alaska. Education Director Michelle Sagers said they are larger than bobcats and have big feet to help them maneuver through snow.
“They have really good eyesight and hearing. They can spot a mouse from 250 feet away,” said Sagers.
Sagers added that the Stokes family from the Tremonton area generously donated, making it possible to add the lynx exhibit.
To see the new lynx, visit Willow Park Zoo Monday-Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm. Admission is $2.50 for adults, $1.50 for children 3-11, and children 2 and under get in free.
Sagers mentioned there are also several options for Willow Park Zoo memberships. For prices and more information, visit <a href=”http://www.loganutah.org/PR/willow_park/index.cfm” target=”_blank”>loganutah.org</a>.
