Newcomers to Granby Zoo
Two jaguar babies are added to the Granby Zoo family, the Granby Zoo Facebook page tells us.
T aiama, a seven-year-old female, gave birth to her third and fourth infants on the night of August 6th.
For the moment, the school offers the mother the necessary calm to take care of her children.
The tip of their muzzle will be noticed during this autumn.
According to the observations of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, jaguar populations have been steadily declining in recent years.
Habitat loss, hunting and illegal trade are the main threats to this mammal.
The jaguar is listed as a Species Survival Plan (SSP) species for which accredited zoos such as Granby Zoo are committed to making breeding efforts.
These births are good news for the preservation of this animal species.
