Male Wanted! Claws & Fangs required. Must love meat. Serious inquiries only.

We have some exciting news to share. As a nationally accredited zoo with AZA (Association of Zoos and Aquariums), we have long collaborated with our peers in the industry for the benefit of species survival. We have recently learned that our zoo has been identified as one that could have an opportunity to expand the gene pool of a critically endangered species.

Sophia, our jaguar, is a candidate for mating. As such, there are certain steps that must be taken in order for her to potentially receive a “boyfriend”: building the “bachelor pad”, additional Keeper training on the intricacies of large cat introduction and breeding, and a high tech video monitoring system.

You can help build Sophia’s dowry!
