Newborn Jaguar Cub Debuts at San Diego Zoo

A young jaguar cub will be the newest addition to the family at the San Diego Zoo, zoo officials said.

Mother Nindiri welcomed the cub on March 12 at 8:30 p.m. inside the jaguar den at the Harry and Grace Steele Elephant Odyssey exhibit.

Visitors looking to spot the wobbly-legged newborn can see it in the cave viewing area during Play Days, a zoo event that started Saturday.

The 18-day-old cub is the third for seven-year-old Nindiri. The sex of the cub is not yet known.
