Two male and two female mountain lion kittens were found in a remote part of the Santa Monica Mountains, as announced in a social media post Tuesday afternoon, Sept. 4. The kittens have been named P-70, P-71, P-72 and P-73.
The kittens’ mother is P-19, who is also P-23’s mom. According to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, P-19 may have mated with P-23’s son (and her own grandson), P-56.
The mountain lion kittens are currently four weeks old.
