The Kid Should See This

A rare black jaguar cub is born at Zacango Zoo

“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.”

From ITN, a report on the small big cats, including a rare black jaguar cub, at Zoologico de Zacango in Mexico. 

Previously: baby animal friends at Akwaaba Lodge, more cats of all sizes, and more zoo videos.
