    Of the Un-pinned Arizona Baby Jaguars

    03-22-14eagle01

    SS: last weekend the new baby jaguars were out of their playpen .. i was standing there watching them and another person was there and we started talking about them. i was told that they were on the news and that the black jaguar is the female. i still have to confirm that but that is what i was told. i did talk to a zookeeper by chance and he told me that the other baby jaguar who was there before was in the african safari park but not on display and that they are building a jaguar exhibit special for all their jaguars. i’m not sure how much of that is true either since i could find nothing that looked like a place for jaguars in the new african safari area. he also told me that a female jaguar was due to arrive soon that would be placed with fitz. i do know for sure they are building a smaller place with a waterfall that i was told by the jaguar zookeeper that fitz would be moved into. fitz loves water.

    Distribution and habitat It has been an American cat since crossing the Bering Land Bridge during the Pleistocene epoch; the immediate ancestor of modern animals is Panthera onca augusta, which was larger than the contemporary cat. Its present range extends from Mexico, through Central America and into South America, including much of Amazonian Brazil. The countries included in this range are Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica (particularly on the Osa Peninsula), Ecuador, French Guiana, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, the United States and Venezuela. The jaguar is now extinct in El Salvador and Uruguay.

    The inclusion of the United States in the list is based on occasional sightings in the southwest, particularly in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. In the early 20th century, the jaguar’s range extended as far north as the Grand Canyon, and as far west as Southern California.

                    Photos show male jaguar roams in Ariz. mountains azfamily.com June 27, 2013 TUCSON, Ariz.

Federally-financed remote cameras photographed the jaguar west of the proposed Rosemont Mine site in the mountains southeast of Tucson.
