Lolo the Jaguar Plays With Her Cub


A rare black jaguar named Lolo played with her two-month old cub a few days ago at the Yaduda Zoo in Jordan during the (yet unnamed) cub's first public appearance. Jaguars are usually spotted, like the cub, but about 6% of them have a condition called "melanism" which turns them all black, like Lolo. Lolo and the cub's father, Falah, are both originally from South America. The father is separated from mother and cub for the cub's safety. These pictures are priceless:
