Jaguar Cubs Born At Milwaukee Zoo Bring New Genes

Two jaguar cubs are providing more than just cooing fans for Milwaukee's zoo. The spotted brothers are introducing new genes to the endangered species' captive population because unlike most zoo babies, their father was born in the wild.

Not only adorable, but they have the potential to help save jaguars from extinction. Quite a heavy load for 2 tiny little babies. Thanks for posting Carrie.

Really cute, the sad part is that they were born in a zoo and not free, the way it should be!

So adorable! They bring new genes, which could help save jaguars from extinction. The sad part is they are not free and in the wild where they belong.
Thanks for sharing Carrie.
