Ellen Trout Zoo already had a Baby Lion last year, now some of the smaller cats might be moving into the spotlight.

According to Zoo Director Gordon Henley,  Kabah, a 142 pound, male Jaguar arrived yesterday afternoon at the Ellen Trout Zoo. He was parent reared with his brother at the Tulsa Zoo and donated to the Ellen Trout Zoo as an SSP recommendation. The 17 month old Jaguar will be paired with our female Jaguar Seraphina who is 6 years old and on loan to us from Zoo New England in Boston. Kabah, named for a Maya city in southeast Yucatan, will remain off-exhibit for several days until he learns his way around the enclosure. It is hoped that in the near future he and Seraphina will become the proud parents of a litter of Jaguar cubs. Jaguars are the largest species of wild cat native to the New World. They can be found from Mexico south to Paraguay and Argentina.
The Ellen Trout Zoo is open every day from 9 am until 5 pm and is the Wildest Place in Town and YOUR Place to Connect to the Natural World!

Zoo Boo is coming up soon, so be looking for more information about the event soon.  Dates are October 25th and 26th.
