River and Ember are the names of two caracal kittens born in October to adult caracals living in a behind-the-scenes area of the Nashville Zoo. The kittens, whose mother was not able to care for them, are being hand-reared by the Zoo's veterinary and carnivore teams for eventual close-up experiences with zoo visitors.
The three-month-old kittens are still living in a neonatal care room at the Zoo's Veterinary Center.
Guests can see the newborns daily on a live camera feed. Find a link to the feed below.
