Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown posts new photos of adorable jaguar cubs

The female cub, right, can be distinguished from her brother by her lighter nose and crescent-shaped markings at the top of her head. The male cub, left, has a darker nose and a more prominent “trident” on the bridge of his nose.

NORRISTOWN >> The Elmwood Park Zoo has shared new photos on their Facebook page of the jaguar cubs who were born Tuesday, Jan. 24.

The mother, Inka, and the father, Zean, were not in the photos but as the zoo points out, “they’re growing so quickly and learning the ropes from mom!”

The zoo held a gender-reveal event Feb. 3 where it was announced the cubs consist of one male and one female.

Inka and the cubs will be off exhibit and out of site for the next few months until they are transferred to the zoo’s new “Trail of the Jaguar” facility.
