Two jaguar cubs were born at the San Diego Zoo at the end of April, according to zoo officials.

These are the first jaguars born at the zoo since 1989. Keepers have yet to determine the sex of the cubs since they are so young.

The 12-day-old cubs weigh just over 4 pounds and are still too young to pounce.

Zoo officials have yet to name the cubs and they will remain in their mother's den until they learn to walk on their own.
