Two Jaguar cubs were born at the Brevard Zoo in Florida at the end of January, a special delivery that can have a huge positive impact on the population of captive Jaguars.

These cubs were born to Masaya (mum) and Mulac (dad), and what makes them special is that 13-year-old Mulac has never sired cubs before. That means the genes in these cubs will introduce more genetic variety in the captive Jaguar population, helping to ensure overall good health for the species' future.

Masaya is being a fantastic mom to both cubs, and they are under constant supervision through a camera installed in Masaya's den. The sex of the cubs has not yet been determined, and they have two or three months of growing to do before they will be able to go out on the exhibit with their mother.
