    It’s a boy!

    Zoo officials said the newborn jaguar cub, which debuted Saturday at the San Diego Zoo, is a boy, though officials have not named him yet. 

    The cub weighed in at 4.8 pounds this week.

    Mother Nindiri and the cub have access to two off-exhibit bedrooms at all times as well as the third cave bedroom, which is visible to the public.

    Guests can stop by the exhibit from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. to try and catch a glimpse of the baby cub, though there is no guarantee guests will be able to see him and his mother because they can chose the space they would like to spend time in.

    Nindiri previously gave birth to a pair of cubs in 2012, a male named Tikal and a female named Maderas.
