Mountain lion cubs found using GPS trackers

- Biologists discovered two new mountain lion kittens in the Santa Monica mountains.

The female and male kittens are now known as P46 and P47 by the National Parks Service.

Both have been implanted with tracking devices that will help researchers track their habits and way of life in the region. 

A tracking device helped the parks service discover their birth, after a GPS tracker helped biologists find their mother, dubbed P19, in a remote area of the mountain range.

Biologists will conduct DNA testing to identify the cubs' father.
