Baby Jaguars At The San Diego Zoo (And Some New Small Crocodiles Too)

There are two new baby jaguars at the San Diego Zoo - they were born April 26. The keepers said today that they are up to about 9-10 pounds. They're generally out with the keepers for a bit, and then with their mother, in the early morning, in one of the grottos behind glass up by the elephant enclosure. The glare and reflections on the glass make it tough to get a decent photo, but I managed a few this morning. The best time to see them is first thing in the morning.





After the keepers finished up checking the cubs, and playing with them for a while, they left and the mother got to join them. Ndiri is quite a good looking cat.



Meanwhile, the cubs' father, Guapo, was pacing around outside.


There are also some new crocodiles in the turtle pool that's about halfway down the Tiger Trail.
