Lyncoln was born in 2012 and hand-reared at a private facility until she came to the zoo at 6 months of age. Lyncoln loves to have her keeper’s attention and will call and purr when they are in sight. Logan was born in 2013 and arrived at the zoo in 2020 from Utica, New York. Logan has never been a fan of his keeper’s like Lyncoln. He only has love for Lyncoln. The hope is that they will be able to breed in the future.
