"Jaguars are already one of the world’s most endangered species, but one of the two cubs on display at Zacango Zoo in Mexico is even more rare because it is melanistic. That means the animal appears completely black, although you can actually see spots if you look carefully. The two cubs were bred from different mothers and they’re the first of their kind to be born at the zoo for a decade."
