Adorable Jaguar Cubs Born At San Diego Zoo (Video)

For the first time in 30 years, a pair of jaguar cubs were born at the San Diego Zoo on April 26. Their keepers report that they are brother and sister. Right now, they weigh just five pounds each, but adult jaguars weigh around 250 pounds, so they have some growing to do.

For now, they are being kept inside, away from the world’s view, but they will be going public soon, and their new home will be surrounded by glass so that they will be visible to the whole world.

They are too cute! I think it's good that they're breed in zoos because they're indangered and at least in a zoo they're safe from cruelty of poachers.
If they where demestic animals I'd look after one. Alas dieing at the paws of a deadly grown up jaguar isn't on my to do list.

Those poor frightened little creatures. Yes, it's nice to see them, but the light is hurting their eyes. Couldn't they be with their mother? You can see they are crying for her.

It is so sad that these adorable babies will no doubt have a better life than if born into their natural habitat, or what's left of it.
