Parents Diego and Jungla, along with several veterinarians are celebrating the birth of a male baby jaguar at a wildlife management center in San Blas, Nayarit, in the Mexican Pacific Coast.
Adult jaguars Diego and Jungla were rescued by officials with the environmental protection agency Profepa in the Bahía de Banderas and San Blas areas.
The male kitten was born at 5:40am on Sunday June 28, within the premises of “La Palma Crocodile Sanctuary” in San Blas and weighed just under one kilogram. It is the first offspring of jaguars rescued in Nayarit.
The animal was separated from its mother and will be raised by veterinarians, although the reason for this action was not explained.
These could be excellent news since jaguars are considered “near threatened” on the conservation status scale, it could be the beginning of a new conservation project for this endangered species in our country.
The jaguar is the largest feline in the Americas, and third largest in the world after the tiger and lion. It is found in the southwestern United States, Mexico, Central America and parts of South America.
While the size of the animal can vary a lot, the jaguar usually weighs around 56 to 96 kilograms, according to Wikipedia.
