WASHINGTON – Aquatic cats are nothing to sniff at, and now visitors to the National Zoo can see 3-month-old fishing felines frolicking in the water.

The kittens and their mom, Electra, are on exhibit from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day on the Asian Trail.

The twins were born on May 18, marking the first time fishing cats have been successfully bred at the National Zoo. To check up on their progress, read the Great Cat Comminique.
