Baby jaguar
At Brevard Zoo

At the Brevard Zoo, the 7-week-old baby jaguar has finally come out to play. This was the baby’s second day playing outside with mama Masaya. Its sex is still unknown.

A Jaguar cub was born at Brevard Zoo in Florida on January 26th. The cub, whose sex has not been determined yet, is bonding well with its mother Masaya.

“I feel so fortunate to be able to work with Masaya and LeBron, the breeding pair,” says Kerry Sweeney, a curator at Brevard Zoo. “It isn’t easy to introduce a male and female jaguar. The staff did an excellent job in 2010 when these jaguars met, creating a comfortable environment for the pair.”
